+8 1968-78

The early cars with the 15” x 5.5” wide wheels

And the 14” ‘Millrace’ wheels.

 

These use the Girling M16 caliper.  These are 2 piston with relatively small pad areas.

Unless you are seeking originality, there is not a lot that can be done with these calipers.

Consider having them overhauled with new seals and pistons.

If originality is secondary to stopping the car, then we would replace the standard calipers with the Billet 4 calipers.

These have approximately 25% larger pad area than standard.  

With the internal shape of these wheels, there is not enough clearance for using a larger diameter rotor.

For normal road use, we would just replace the calipers with the more efficient Billet 4, and retain the stock rotors,

Billet 4 calipers, brake pads and Aeroquip hoses,        £414.00   

 

If you have the later factory 6.5” x 15” wheels, these have a totally different internal construction, then the larger diameter rotors will clear.

 

Product options:

We can offer a disc upgrade, using a 280 x 22mm heavy duty vented rotor. These will fit with the same Billet 4 calipers.

These rotors are virtually the same diameter as standard. 

The vented rotors will dissipate the heat from heavy braking, where the standard rotor would overheat and lead to brake fade. (These rotors have been homologated for Group 4 FIA use.)

Vented Discs, Billet 4 Calipers, brake pads, aeroquip hoses and all bolts,  £598.00

Front brakes 1981 to 1992

These fit when the later wheels of 6.1/2” wide 15" Diameter are installed.

The ideal kit, as wider tyres have more grip for braking.

 

 

Using the 300mm x 22mm ventilated rotors as in the later kits, with the aluminium  billet 4 calipers,

Complete kit with all the installation hardware, mounting brackets, including brake pads and aeroquip hoses.                    £779.00

 

We can also offer a pair of replacement aluminium 4 piston calipers to suit the standard discs, should you not wish to change the discs

£464.00

Product options:

The rotors are normally supplied plain faced

Crossdrilling or grooving is an additional £40.00 per pair

Aeroquip braided steel brake hoses £44.00 for front hoses only or £60.00 including the rear hose

 

Otherwise, if you do not need the extra braking, as you are a conscientious driver, and your existing calipers have seen enough service, there are still options.
