Landcruiser rear disc brake bracket template

Postby Brattley » Wed Mar 30, 2016 12:19 pm

Hi all,
I'm looking for a bracket template (or brackets) for installing rear disc brakes into my 1976 FJ45.
Im using Prado discs and MR2 calipers (which incl handbrake). Does anyone have any thing they can share?

Thanks

Hi,
I'm currently doing the same conversion at the moment. Have you used an original Mr2 hand brake cable or had a custom cable made? Or what cable have you used?
Thanks Jason

I'll be getting my cables custom made. Essentially just shortening them and adding a clevis end.

Hi. Did anyone have a template at all for the mr2 brake set up? Im just starting the process now. Ive got a Bj70 and also sick of performance as well as having to replace the shoes every 5k! Cheers :)

Ive even had custom brake shoes made with groves cut into them to help them clear..which did help :D but theres no stopping the slop/grinding paste getting in there!
