HC Caliper rebuild

Postby John B the 2nd » Thu Aug 22, 2019 9:16 pm

For a 1972 HC viva I found that these pistons e.t.c and the kit were an exact fit from another vehicle MG Midget 64-79

The kit does a pair of calipers, doesn't it? So time aside, it still works out less actual cash outlay if you can rebuild them yourself. And think of the metal trees we're saving by refurbishing old stuff...

Or is £32 for a pair? Can't be, surely?

Ah, sorry. I thought you were saying you sell calipers for £32 delivered, not that you sell the same kit for that price. I thought it sounded a bit cheap even for the smaller calipers, but now I've read it again it's clear.
