Caliper bolt spacing?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know why my caliper bolt spacing is off by 8mm compared to the new ones that just came from RockAuto?

 

 

New calipers arrived in the mail


Did I order the wrong ones?

Bolt spacing is 8 millimeters too short and it does not Center itself on the rotor

My struts I were told are from a Aussie 120y if that helps (yes I imported them), not sure what year.

Two most obvious answers:

 

1. RockAuto sent you the wrong shit (been known to happen).

 

2. Aussie 120Y uses calipers that were never sold on a USDM car.

3/ they are not aussie 120Y struts.

 

 

What is the distance between holes center to center???

75.36mm  just like the caliper shows.  He used the right edge to right edge method, it's a lot more accurate.

Arggggghhhhhhh

 

So frusterating. Apparently some 120ys had a caliper bracket and some did not. Impossible to tell if this is even a 120y strut or B310 or 1200

 

I have old cruddy brakes that came with the struts but they dont even seem to fit right either.

PL510 and HL510 are 76mm although different calipers. I don't know if they would fit your rotor or not.

Yes but I don't need calipers that are 75 millimeters. That's what they sent me I need calipers that are 83 millimeters

Still nothing... 89mm are 280zx and S110. Obviously these are somewhere below this.

It is from Datsun Sunny 1976-1978

54303-H7405 STRUT, LH

 

AMPCO was a Datsun factory supplier

 

B210 used many different strut part numbers, but they look mostly identical. Those that start with H10/H50 have the small stub axle/large bearings, and those that start with H74 have the large stub axle/small bearings

What was the US version of the 1976 Sunny?

They are NOT B310. I can promise you that. 

 

In the US, only the 1200 used bolts and nuts to hold it onto the steering arm. Everything else used threaded holes in the strut base and just bolts (no nuts). 

 

Also, the B310 used the larger lower bolt spacing, a la 510/610/710/A10/280ZX.

Good info DF.

 

Looks like im up shits creek.

 

1. Get my aussie brakes stripped and rebuilt. Make them work somehow so they center on the rotor.

 

2. Scrap my new suspension / steering. Buy a swap like possibly 280zx struts and new brakes.
