Checking back, I think Mark spaced the disc away from the back of the hub?

gtcse8, Would like a set of discs but my problem is that with a 12mm spacer in the caliper I would need to machine the original OZ wheels or fit spacers. So suddenly it gets a bit complicated, even though it would only be a few mm. See Roger's post below for the photo.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
There are times when I think the gene pool could do with some chlorine.

Hi dypcdiver, I downloaded and edited your photo to remove the large excess white space, to make it easier to see, I've added the edited version below. When I tried to replace your photo with the one below (using my moderator access to edit your post), it wouldn't allow it. though I notice the original has disappeared anyway! Not sure if that's something I did, or you did? Anyway, here it is: :)

Cheers Roger,
I was editing it at the same time hence the confusion, I was also getting rid of the white space that good old paint added when I resized the photo.

I can see there is not a lot of space left.
If you remove ONE wheel nut how much thread is left before your going to need studs as well as spacers??.

Spacers are not a problem as I have made them for lots of different wheels and offsets, inc corky on his racer.


See the Beast on youtube under" RELIANT SCIMITAR CONVERSION LOL.,Se5,Se5a, Se6a, Two Se6b`s, GTC, SST 1800Ti & not a lot of sense

gtcse8, Sorry not to have got back to you, another problem has crept up, for some reason the Sabre is overheating after 10 or so miles and ditching nearly all it's coolant, found a jammed open T'stat which should have kept it cool not overheating! water pump or cylinder head gasket are suspect. Either way brakes are not just now top of the list.
