I'm intentionally not going to include this in my build thread as I may end up referring my engineer to the build thread and I may or may not present the car for engineering with these brakes as it will depend on whether 15 x 7 wheels will fit over these brakes as the engineer will not like the 16 x 8 option I'm intending to run
I bought my new wheels bearings today ($95.00 for front and rear including seals from Bearing Wholesalers in Bayswater) meaning I could put the hubs and brakes on the MCA struts finally.
I had to convert the R33 discs which are 5 stud (they slip over the front of the hub and held on by the wheels) to bolt to the 4 bolt holes on the rear of the 240 hub. The problem is that however you try to align the holes there is always one hole that overlies an existing hole so one of these holes had to be plugged. The engineering shop I used was very good and they pressed in a tapered plug and drilled for the new 4 hole pattern. They also had to bore out the center of the disc to fit the 240 hub.
Front side of disc:
Back side of disc:
The dogbones worked out really well and fitted up with the gold zinc plated bolts.
I had to slightly grind the top caliper bolt head and discard the spring washer so it didn't hit the strut tube .
Just need to sort brake lines once the struts are in the car.
