how many of these threads are you going to make?


Not sure.... probably a handful of them... You have a problem with me trying to help people out?
if you have a problem with people wasting space on the forum, why don't you lead by example and stop posting up meaningless replies like that.
do you think that helps anyone or improves the forum?


lol!

In regards to caliper brackets...my local flow-jet/machine shop is scheduled to make me a set of brackets for W-body rear brakes in 2 weeks(They are booked up till then). I dont know if anyone would be interested in such? Im paying for the design and initial setup...after that it would be just copying, so pretty cheap. Anyones thoughts on W body brakes?

The way I understand it, Im the first to try this setup. 10.9 in rotor, will use W body rear calipers, ebrake cables im still working on, but Im pretty sure I got it covered.
The brackets will bolt between the axle and bearing and are 3/8 thick. Caliper and bracket will then bolt to that. Only down side is..it will use redrilled rotors and im thinking I may have my machinist make me hub-centric rings for the rotors to make sure they are perfectly square.

I thought we used a similar wheel bearing setup to the GPs?

Quick search yielded the fact that the GP rear wheel bearing assembly is more square than the J-body one.

Something better than the thin piece of crap sheet metal that holds down the fuel injectors on my 2.2 OHV.
