I prefer to wait until you have the cable sorted ...i just want to buy your kit and install it , i dont want to have to search hoping i might find a cable or may not ....so i will wait until the final product is ready .

A friend just bought the complete rear kit from silverminemotors with the Wilwood calipers, mc4 calipers and the oem brake cable.

Is it even necessary in your kit to buy the new cable?

A friend just bought the complete rear kit from silverminemotors with the Wilwood calipers, mc4 calipers and the oem brake cable.

Hey....

 

I wasn't aware of this kit, but have just checked it out online. Subsequently I have just gone out to the shed to investigate if the OEM cable will connect to the MC4....I did check this way back in the beginning, but perhaps i missed something...

 

Using my old stock OEM 260Z cable....i see no way of mounting it without modification. The hole in the caliper through which the end fitting of the cable passes through is not large enough. So, without reaming out that hole there is no chance. I don't know if the 240Z cable is different. Secondly, the clevis arrangement on the OEM cable does not fit correctly into the lever arm of the MC4. You will not get the pin in without modification to one or the other. also, i don't believe there would be quite enough length even if the fittings did fit, due to where the MC4's now mount as opposed to where the OEM cable originally connected to the drum brakes.See the attached photos of what i found....

 

It has to be noted, that in order to test the system recently, with the (incorrect) cable I received from my manufacturer, i had to enlarge that hole...this is NOT desirable, and has left the caliper compromised for strength in my opinion....and if it were to be done, A machine shop would need to do this in order to guarantee that you didn't 'snap' off one or both of the fingers whilst drilling, as the drill bit tends to grip and grab....there isn't much thickness to start with. I was lucky !

 

My intention is to provide a kit that will bolt up first time, without modification to your 260Z. The hard work is done, its just a matter of the cable, and i have good news on that front...I have found a supplier that is LOCAL, and believes he can make the cable no problems, and significantly cheaper than the previous supplier. I am awaiting an email from him.

 

Updates coming Soon....

Well that is interesting....that is not the same as my OEM 260Z cable. I wonder why the Clevis isnt connected ?..probably because it wont line up without mods...unless the clevis is different on a 240Z once again.

 

Anyway...enough said.....its your call whether or not you want the cable.

Interesting - neither of those exactly match the 3 260Z cables i have here. But have been variations for different markets

Not trying to clutter up your thread with this, but since I am following, I thought I'd share. This is on my '75

So those last pictures can be a little misleading

I'm using the 300zxtt rear hub bearing / 300 zxtt 5 lug hub with the AZC rear wilwood brake. Will your mounting plate work with this so I can add a parking brake?

Mate its hard for me to say without seeing obviously.

If you are using the 240z/260z AZC kit...then the offsets etc should be right...the 5 lugs arent an issue though
