Wilwood emergency/parking brake brackets

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what screws are used in the front of the AZC kit?

Used a 9 mm allen key and the thread diameter is 10,1 mm? What are those?

 

Alexander....Firstly, are you talking about the kit for the Front Wheels, or the main caliper mounting on the Back wheels ?

 

USA still mostly uses imperial, instead of metric.....so, that 10.1mm thread diameter is most probably 3/8" 24 thread. That is the same as what is in the AZC supplied Rear Caliper mounts, and I have also used that thread on My Rear Brackets so that people dont have to change their Bolts. Hope this helps

 

Has your kit arrived ?

 

Cheers

 

Warren

3/8 allen key would be right. That sucks a bit.

 

It's in the customs office at the german airport.

 

And good thing you made them out of steel, I would have difficulties to drive them legally on the streets when it's aluminum.

Paid for 2-day shipping on my set of brackets and were in the midst of completing the install between today and tomorrow morning. Kit and cables went on flawlessly, thank you so much Woza01!

 

This is Fantastic news !....THANKS !...Whilst i know they fit, Its always a nervous time until customers get them, and fit them without any problems !. So thanks for the feedback !. Please feel free to post some pics if you are so inclined ! Did you get your brackets powder coated ?

 

Thanks

Very nice!

 

 Do the pads come with the new WILWOOD MC4 MECHANICAL PARKING BRAKE CALIPERS?

 

I'm looking to pic up a pair here  >  http://www.ebay.com/itm/271443710658?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Gents...

 

I too fitted my kit this week (I still had the prototype kit fitted !). As you know, I sandblasted, then painted mine brackets. When i was fitting them, I had done everything and was at the stage of bolting the calipers up to the bracket. I was surprised when the 2 bolts for the main caliper got VERY tight, and to the point where they would tighten no more without extra leverage.. So..I removed the rotor, and ran a tap through the holes....it was the paint !.....i have never experienced this before, and after i ran the tap through, the bolts went in as they should !.

 

So.....this is just a heads-up for all you guys getting your brackets powder coated (or even painted) ....make sure you at least try threading your bolts all the way through EACH hole BEFORE you fit the brackets up. Its a little awkward re-tapping them once the bracket is bolted up !

 

Cheers

Yep..pads come with the Mc4's!

 

Love the red...wish all mine were red lol

 

The red does look nice. I'm glad they have the black though, as all my wilwood calipers are indeed blk.   :)

I finally got them. Would have been last week if not for the customs.

 

The thread of the holes for the main calipers are not completely going through. Was that intentionally?

3/8"-24 UNF was it?

 

So PLeased they finally arrived !....what was the problem with Customs ?

 

No !....definately not intentional.....the threads SHOULD go all the way through. In fact, this perhaps may have been the same problem that I encountered....I had to run a tap through the Main Caliper holes on mine also, but I assumed that it was paint (I couldnt see properly as they were mounted on the car).

 

I can only apologize for this, and hope that no one else has this issue...It cant be everyone because one person fitted their kits no problem.

 

Yes, the Thread for the main Caliper holes is 3/8 24

 

Cheers

They didn't like "Gift" and 400 AUD value on the package. And maybe the part where the gift is not packeged in gift wrap. :P  Had to show them the invoice.

 

PS: The thread on the front brake caliper holes are 7/16"-20.

 

Oh I see......I asked about this at the post office, and i was not allowed to have $500 insurance with $0 value.....Anyway, glad its all worked out !

 

I'm confused....the "front" Caliper ?.....I'm wondering why the reference to the front brakes ?

Because:

Used a 9 mm allen key and the thread diameter is 10,1 mm? What are those?

7/16-20 (11,1mm diameter) thread for the bolts which hold the caliper,  12mm holes for the bolts to the stub axle.

I just didn't like to have wrong facts or unanswered questions open.

I am in the middle of installing the kit with the not completely unexpected problems with the hand brake cable end. I got the same problem you posted a while ago:

Not exactly sure how to solve this problem but my OEM cable worked for the other part and is long enough. It's a 12/72 build US 73 model.
