Are pug 505 disc thinner in thickness as mine setup with 25mm
I could not afford the AP prices in the late 80's early 90's so nothing has changed there then. The Pug disc's will go straight on with a spacer between the disc & hub.

Right I see.
And right can you still use a 4 pot caliper aswell. Does the 505 bolt to the front of your wheel hub with a little screw as they be a lot thinner aswell than my escort discs

I was also curious to see if any other zeds have the same setup

For the AP disc's & the Pug disc's the Range Rover calipers had spacers fitted to open them up so that they where wide enough for the vented disc's.

Yeah. But how does the pug 505 bolt to your hub and does it line up with the 4 pot

As far as I'm concerned the easiest conversion is to use the 260z hub, Peugeot vented discs (suitably machined), and Toyota calipers. No spacers required anywhere.

240z brake discs for samuri

Small caveat on that Nigel- when I did mine a couple of years back, I found the calliper cooling fins were connecting with the inside of the wheels!! So I hacked them off with an angle grinder as I will never get them hot enough to need them and also I hate spacers with a passion!!

I can't find my own post on the topic but I think I had the slightly wider callipers with the pug discs.

Edit: see post 38 onwards on this thread:

Problem is that you cant get the pug 505 vented discs anymore, unless there is a new source ?
