What size disc are the front calipers for? Vented or solid?

Cheers

@blakep82, before chris gibbs book came out there were rather a lot of Ron Champion locosts built with sierra doners due to lack of Escorts. Mine has a real mix of parts including sierra engine, gearbox and other things. As Cortina uprights are also rare Sierra ones were also sometimes used. You could use bits to build a Chris Gibbs roadster but chassis and back axle would not work

@minicooper, the calipers and disks are a set. The disks are vented and sierra size to fit the uprights, next time I gp to lock up I will measure but this may not be until next weekend.

Thanks Caber, whatever size the sierra calipers/discs turn out to be, I believe either 240mm or 260mm is usual sierra sizes, did you try them for fitment inside the laser alloys which I think are 13" like my current wheels are? This information would help me either way if you did

Cheers
David
