As I get closer to finishing the brake system rebuild on my 1960 MGA 1600 I am missing some parts. Indeed they can be purchased new but are fairly steep considering what they are. When attaching each front caliper, there is a lock plate required along with a total of four bolts that have different threads on either end. One end is threaded to hold the caliper to the wheel hub and the other is threaded for a nut to hold the locking plate (which has a U shape bracket on one end to hold the brake line). I need both the left and right and used and in need of a clean up is great and the four bolts if anyone has them to spare.
I also replaced the engine during this process and do have the mechanical tachometer drive from the original one saved. My question is that I cannot turn the tach drive gear by hand.....I have lubed it well and can turn it with a fair of grips wrapped around a piece of leather to avoid marring the gear cog but seems like it shouldn't be that hard to turn....then again the engine I am sure generators ALOT of torque compared to my hand.....any thoughts if its ok to reuse?
Looking for a couple of MGA 1600 Brake bits and question about the tach drive
