G`day all

I`m gathering parts to do my MKII  door and have a mental block. When changing to rear discs what parts do you need? Im pretty sure that one of the psrts is from a volvo. but thats aout all my pooe tired old mind can come up with.

Cheers

Troppo

Most Maltese conversions where done using a Fiat 132 Rear axle

Probably because you had a never ending supply 50 miles away in Pasta Land!

Never heard of Volvo parts being used - but anything is possible. Usual combination is Sierra / Cossy calipers, Cossy Escort cable, Pug 205 / 206 / 309? disc's and someone's fabricated axle mount. Or just buy the whole lot from someone like Motorsport Tools / Rally Design!

fiesta mk1/2 front discs 

Or take fiesta mk3 front discs these got the same centerhole as the escort/capri/taunus 63.4 mm , but these are all vented ? i think , and that can give a problem with the calipers escort mk3/4 /wheels , than can be used a spacer.

This is what i gonna fit on mine escort mk1 , with a hydraulic handbrake ,  if this is legal for road use in England ?

Handbrake in UK has to be mechanical  not hydraulic.
