    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.

    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

    Thought I had already said that.

    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.

    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 ?
