    I am using a sud engine and gearbox with inboard brakes on my kit car. The car is mid engine so what were the front brakes are now the rear brakes. On two occasions, the seals leak on the calipers. I'm using DOT5 brake fluid I am using independant master cylinders for front and rear brakes...

    Hi all I have rebuilt my front inboard brakes but as my car is non standard, I am not sure if the way the pipes run is correct, can someone lift their bonnet and check for me.. I have 3 outputs on the master cylinder but 1 has a bleed nipple in, and I'm not sure if the front and rear lines are...

    Argggg, I was all set to rebuild a set of Alfasud front callipers on the Minari this weekend, but have just found a lovely patch of rust on one of the pistons and it's right on the line of where the seal sits. Is there anybody out there who would like to free up a small bit of space in there...

    I ended up replacing a front tyre due to the usual inboard edge wear.....chatting to the mechanic who replaced the tyre and checked the tracking, looking at the print out he reckons the camber on the front is wrong. This got me thinking that the front suspension bushes are worn and need...

    Hi All, I've got a cheap 1.5 engine going. It's a manual tappet single carb engine removed from my Minari (I'm fitting a 1.7 16v). It'll come with the appropriate inlet manifold, carb, etc. but no distributor or alternator. It was running when removed from the car, however the last time I...

    My Alfasud is converting to a 16V with inboard brakes. To work around the inboard brakes, I plan to fit an ANSA crossover manifold (from a donor 1.7 Carb Sud) modified with the skewed flanges cut from the original 16V system. Maybe not an ideal solution, but it should fit OK. If not, then costly...

    Hi guys - a small problem that you may be able to help me with. For several years now I have been having problems with my OS (RH) handbrake caliper; the internal actuating cam had a flat, or a wear ridge on it, and would stick on that side without releasing (unless I got out and popped the...

    To fit inboard calipers to a (good) 33 gearbox to use in a Sud, how do you utilise the existing castings in the 33 box? I'm aware of other changes needed to fit the Sud speedo, driveshafts etc. The castings are identical to the Sud box, but each needs a new insert to mount the caliper studs...

    I stupidly lost both of my suds bleeder screws on the front inboard calipers (not too surprising given the space to work in) trying to free them up after 15 years of sitting unused. Are these a standard size? can I get them at most auto part stores or are the a non standard size?

    I've been slowly absorbing the Alfasud_sprint_FIA document that was kindly posted up here, and have been particularly interested in the upgrades that were made to the front, inboard, brakes. The document shows two alternative disc and caliper combinations, one set of lockheed components, and...

    Back from holidays and started already to think about Alfasud parts required for the coming months. In early August I searched for front inboard pads but with no result. Bendix do not have any and Ferodo only for the rear discs. Do you know from where I can buy the EBC pads in Nicosia? The UK...

    Hello there, I've seen a couple of S1 racers that had inboard brakes, and want to go that way with my S1 (I think rsfruitbat is running inboard too). less unsprung weight, no rim fouling the disk issues on smaller diameter wheels, better gear ratios right?:rolleyes: Recently secured a sud box...

    Hi, I am a newbie. I've recently bought an Alfasud Sprint Veloce which is fitted with the later rear axle with drum brakes and hand brake on the rear, but has still got the original front inboard disc brakes. I want to fit lowering springs to the car and because it is a hybrid I'd need to...

    Just wondered how hard is it to convert to outboad brakes! Would make working on them alot easier!
  17. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I dont know if any of the classes require people to stick with the Suds inboard brakes. If they do, or for anyone who trackdays one with inboard brakes what is the brake fluid that stands up to the conditions best? rsfruitbat

    This has been mentioned a couple of times in recent threads. I have the conversion with std spaced calipers. What I dont know is what the discs are originally from or what they are modified from :cry: . Anyone know? If the dimensions would help anyone else I have measured mine up and can post...

    Hi all.i'm looking for any advice anyone can give re the above.I tried a search and ended up on a problem page hence this post. I cured the clicking sound by doing the brake pads. However on accelerating the car is fine .On the overrun the rumling noise is there.Braking removes the rumbling as...
