Recommended Posts

johnnyp

i rang gsf to order a pair of calipers for a tu engined 1.0 xe i know they are bendix but he said there was 2 types and they changed over in about 1990 i didnt think there was a difference i the bendix caliper then he said he could only get the latter ones and i needed the early verision. Can i just get the latter model and use them

 

thankyou Johnny

I'd like to know what the difference is between the early & later ones.

 

The only way I can think of two types is vented & solid but surely he hasn't got that confused?

 

You should be Ok getting the later ones imo.

might be a 2mm increase in piston size

Not according to Brakeparts.co.uk.

 

The only change I can see is they stopped using the Girling solid disc caliper (which are listed as rare) around then & just fitted Bendix afaik. They still had the same sized 48mm piston though.
