No was on the list to do, understand its a straight swop just the pipe work to change but I was running FD fronts and Rear calipers

That's something I did not know Mark. Sounds like a good upgrade considering our cars are approaching 30 yrs now!  What pipe works needs changing ... it's just one vac hose as I recall? (not that I've ever looked into it so maybe it's not that simple)   :-\

The bolt pattern is the same you just need to change the pipe work from the master cylinder

Hi Mick - are you changing for preference or necessity ? Do you need an original used unit instead ?
Cheers

hi cliff all sorted now & found out that the brake pedal was touching one of the steering colum v clamps fitted by rxmotors making the clicking sound after they fitted a power steering  from a 12at!  cheers mick
