Thanks
I tried to find some last year and no one had any ordered a few sets from variuos suppliers Brembo, eBay etc etc and they all let me down and ended up refunding my money,

I have found a replacement disc for the pug ones now but does need a bit of machining like the 505 ones

I had this kerfuffle last year as well, in the end I admitted defeat and ordered some 4lug vented Z31 rotors from the US!

Have you any better pics? Is it a spacer bolted to the standard hub with the disc then bolted to that? It doesn't look like a 'proper' bell arrangement at all?

There were no spaces on the hub when you took it off just there were spacers on caliper to get that sit in line with disc
There was a spacer for the wheel so don't catch the caluper

I just wanted to see some one else set up on a samuri or 240z just see variation but car works fine had no issues like

Just wanted to no what hub was off on 1st page thread if got a picture of hub to disc

as with all things samurai there's no hard and fast rules it seems.

your current discs are made for mounting on a bell, it looks like you've a good disc setup, the spacer and range rover arrangement would make you think that hopefully at one point there was a caliper that fitted without the spacer?

Or those discs and range rover calipers are what was around at the time and they've been been made to fit together?

Aww yeah I like it how they have made do with what they had at time.

Ino what the caluper is and disc just the front hub I dunno what came off.

The pads use all of the disc. Only 5mm off the disc that ain't getting used

The discs are good generic fit ones, they'll go on lots of bells, lots of options, which is good.

Maybe a little heath robinson in the way they're used but it works!

Is it a standard hub that's been drilled?

Taking it all off would help.

The costs of a proper AP disc/bell and caliper setup are a little eye watering.
