Post  Lowlifedubber on Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:45 pm

Right ive recently done a full brake conversion on Potter and these are some bits that are left.

Back axle 1376mm(the wide one you want for mk2 Widetrack conversion)This is complete,with 2 brand new drums,2 brand new wheel cylinders good shoes good bushes and both handbrake cables.Also has the brake bias valve which works fine and dandy.
If you want you can stick this on your mk2 take the stub axles off and pop discs on it.Jobs a gudn. £30

Wish I'd known you have carriers for 16v front brakes! I'd have had them off you but I've gone and got 239mm discs now Sad

So you have carriers to move the caliper out for 259 and 280s? I thought I'd need 16v hubs to go up to 280s?

How much for the carriers? I could just take the discs back to gsf and change them for bigger discs Cool

Sorry mate i thought you had put 16v hubs on the front.I will measure the mounting hole centres for you in the morning so you can check but i dont think they fit normal gti hubs.

As far as I'm aware the carriers are the same for G60s, if you fit them to an 8v you can fit 259s, if you fit them to 16v hubs you can fit 280s. I'd be happy with 259s as my P slots won't go over the 280s, or the 14" gti steels I'm getting tomorrow. How much just for the carriers mate? I believe they just bolt to the hub and the caliper bolts to that to space the caliper out a bit? Would be an ideal set up for me as I have a 16v master cylinder to fit as well.

Sound mate I'l try and get to GSF tomorrow to see if I can swap them new 239s to 259s, bet they'l want another tenner on top as well the robbing barstewards. If they're gonna want something daft like £20 on top for the 259s I might have to give it a miss as I'm skint Laughing

I was only 3mm out, don't get petty Suspect

Just checked my receipt, I paid £19.50 +VAT each for the 239s, and the website says the 256s are £18.30 each, I guess plus VAT, if thats the case, I should get some money back!

Awesome. Fancy giving me a hand fitting them? (In other words I'm too much of a weakling to get the bolt undone and I need a big bald bloke to rescue me) Laughing

May as well fit my 16v master cylinder at the same time then haha. If you have some decent 256mm discs that would be awesome, but I'm not sure GSF will let me return the new ones, they'd probably give me a credit note.

I think GSF sell the caliper bolts, might have to get some as long as they ain't silly money. Don't think I'l have time to go there tomorrow so I'l shoot down there on Thursday morning and try swapping the 239s for an extra 17mm of awesomeness Laughing

I think the part number of number 3 would only be applicable if I was getting it from VW wouldn't it? Them carriers can't be very big if they've only got to space the caliper out 8.5mm? You got a pic of it on ETKA?

The carrier itself to space the caliper out. Just curious as I know of them but never seen one.
