ZE­PHYR BRAKES

Classic Ford - - EXPERTCLINIC -

My first car was a Mk3 and 30 years later I find my­self own­ing two more and in the process of re­build­ing them. Does any­one do a bolt-on Wil­wood front brake kit in a choice of disc sizes? The front hub has the same four-bolt disc mount­ing as the Capri and Es­cort, which are read­ily avail­able. Pete Hor­gan New Zealand A “We don’t do a spe­cific kit for the Mk3 Ze­phyr,” ex­plains Scott Gille­spie from Rally De­sign, who are Wil­wood’s Euro­pean dis­trib­u­tor. “It may be pos­si­ble to put one to­gether us­ing dif­fer­ent parts from a range of kits, but without a Ze­phyr strut to hand, it’s very dif­fi­cult to be sure our parts would go to­gether on there.” “How­ever, we’ve put to­gether a De­sign Guide (down­load­able in pdf for­mat) from the Rally De­sign web­site), which goes through the steps of build­ing your own brake kit, which is a much bet­ter op­tion, and pop­u­lar with our cus­tomers. “We have a range of uni­ver­sal brake parts (brack­ets/bells) that are drilled to fit the cal­lipers/discs, but not the ve­hi­cle. You use your own data from the car to make the mod­i­fi­ca­tions to these parts — this does re­quire ac­cess to ma­chine fa­cil­i­ties, though.”
