Specs on wilwoods caliper brackets

Postby CMS-GT4 » Mon Aug 09, 2004 9:24 pm

Anyone have specs or dimensions of the wilwood caliper brackets? Ie. material width etc?

I need something simular to the ones here, but I am doing 12" rotors.

Even if I had the info on the 13" brackets, I could just change it by an inch. BTW: I bought Lee's old setup.

You want something similar to Dennis Heath's setup?

CNC Aluminum I believe.
ST165, then ST165, then ST185, then ST165.

Sure. I just need something stong that will bolt up the calipers on a 12" rotor. I like th idea of light alum. as long as it is stong enough. Do you have anything like that in stock? :wink:

he has the same size i have... i took the pn off of his page (was kinda mad he would have the pn up there if he new they were too big) they seem to be too big for the mc and are very mushy... i think with a larger mc which i havent gotten around to do yet they will brake very hard!!

Does the Wilwood calipers fit on a ST165?

They will with an adapter. Dennis heath had a JDM 90 ST185 with brakes like the ST165. The bracket he made would have actually fit on the ST165.

If someone wants to subsidize this research, I will develop a brake adapter for the ST165 and/or ST185. I will design it on professional software, run finite element analysis on it, and produce drawings for an adapter anyone can make. The problem is, I don't have the cash for the parts. So if yall wanna get together and help me pay for the Willwood kit, I will give you an awesome adapter drawing that is easy to make on common machine tools.

If this doesn't sound good to you, let's work something out. I think this could really help the Alltrac community.

How will you test fit the bracket? Do you have a spare hub assembly? If I made an adapter out of steel, could you make drawings for it that would make sense to a CNC machinist?

Well... I would have to take my car apart to test fit the bracket. Which would be fine, because I will have to take my car apart anyways as soon as I am done working for the summer, when I do a bunch of maintenence on the car.

I have experience getting parts made, so yes, I can made a drawing that will make sense to a machinist.

OK then.

I'm going to make a crude adapter to bolt a MA70 caliper on to ST165 (or try to) OR maybe a Supra TT caliper.
ST165, then ST165, then ST185, then ST165.

MA70? Not sure what that is... if you are interested in getting some drawings made, lemme know by email. We can work something out. Just wanna know what the deal is before say I will help out. I am not sure I'd wanna make drawings and such for brakes I either don't have or am not interested in getting for this car.
