Would an Engineer approve the mod?

I know Range Rovers with their 4 piston callipers specifically specify they are not to be dismantled.

The wider vented rotor would have to centralised otherwise the pistons wouldn't be balanced and it could impart some interesting forces on the suspension.

i can see why not its like a sandwich plate we ended up doing prob 1/2 dozen road cars same way never had a problem
in saying that hk/t/g monaros and xr/xt GT.s pulled up at the end of conrod straight with solid discs and i doubt there would be many rods driven in same fashion any good engineer would pass them im sure

This is for South Aussie , probably doesnt apply anywhere else .

So i have a 76 front end fitted , Im not about too fit another , all the sites say " just bolts straight on " but they are talking about
the vented disks and fail to mention the calipers , well maybe Ill look a little harder .

The engineer is an idiot .
I may be wrong , but i think to go to vented discs and the calipers to suit you may need to change the actual spindle as well .

Non vented are Series1. For vented discs with the 4 spot calipers you will need the series 11 or 111. stubs and the steering arms as well . The S1 steering arms will not bolt up to the S11 or S111 stubs.

Also another tip before fitting a Jag f/e especially if being welded solid to a chassis rather than OEM mounted. Check that the lower control arm bush bolts are able to be moved. They are continuous bolts running through a steel sleeve in the crossmember. Supposed to be coated with copper coat or similar anti seize when assembled after bush replacement. If some lazy bum has not done this, then the bolts can rust into the sleeve and become almost if not impossible to remove. Too bad if you want to replace the control arm bushes. A bad experience I had with one,luckily the crossmember was not fitted to the vehicle, weeks of soaking had me contemplating using a hole cutter to the underside of the crossmember along the path of the bolts for access to play an oxy torch into it.Ended up lucky as it was an S1 front end and I got offered a free S111 front end as long as I fitted the old one as a swap just to keep their body shell as a roller.
