After some carefull measuring and designing I could come up with a workable solution to enable the mounting of Defender* calipers and discs onto a Series, II, IIA and III axles. I came up with a modified swivel housing and a modified wheel hub.
Both cast from nodulair cast iron, which is much stronger then the grey iron used by Land Rover for the original swivels and hubs. All are CNC machined and in-house quality checked. The complete production, from casting the iron to machining and finishing, is done here in The Netherlands.
*) Discs and calipers from Discovery SI and Range Rover (classic), ventilated or non ventilated, can also be used.
Disc brake kit to enable the fitting of Defender rotor discs and calipers
This is the basic bare kit and it consists of:
– 2 swivel houses
– 2 wheel hubs
The swivels and hubs come bare and all the original components will fit onto and into them (bearings, seals, gaskets, free wheel hubs, king pins etc.).
There is no need for any modification.
All parts used are the original / standard Series axle parts except for the 2 Defender rotor disc (+ bolts) and the 2 Defender caliper (+pads and bolts).
