im going with post 40 on my sud, i already have offered things up and know what i need to modify to make it happen, as Kev very correctly points out, you don't need huge amounts of effort on the back of a Sud, so the alfetta rear calipers are more than enough. I will have a bias valve in the car to set the balance up.
when it warms up and i dare go back in the garage i will post up some pics
this is excellent refurbished alfettta calipers are the same price as sud ones, so your opinion is that this should work with some spacers on the through bolts and some flexible cables maybe, did you notice any other mods?
My racecar needs to be Mot'd for the series I race in, for a braking solution we are using HiSpec, they do a Sierra Lug fit caliper with integral hand brake mechanism... will work a treat.
I was looking at this solution, does the require a adaptor bracket for the mounts, i guess you are considering "Ford Sierra 253/10mm Ultralite 2 SVA Rear Conversion" so you need a larger disk as well?
I have done the wilwood spot caliper conversion and I run 13" wheels.
Biggets problem I found was finding somehwere to mount a caliper.
I looked at Golf calipers but felt that the rear watts rod would be fouling the mechanism on the caliper so abandoned them.
My spot calipers are mounted directly above the std caliper on a simple plate I made up at home. It then uses alfa 146 cables and the bracket they both go into on a 146 to marry up to a std Sud cable. Works ok as glowing red discs showed on my first test run. This is the main mod that is needed that I havent doen yet. The lever on the calipers needs a return spring to remove the pressure after you have released the handbrake.
, interesting solution, so the handbrake cable brackets from the 146 was mounted to the sud assembly, pretty cheap solution as well.
Thanks guys this is a great help, i really appreciate you sharing your ideas. I am going to have to research some of the dimensions, i really like the idea of the Hispec solution, but i doubt it would clear a 13inch wheel.
So i think the alfetta solution would still be the cleanest?
