Ali Bells Discs Installation

So, following my on track activities at North Weald, although the track was pretty greasy, it was very apparent that I needed to do something about the front brakes. So, when the sales as Eliseparts came up, I duly reached for the wallet! :D

 

Swapping out the front discs is a one of the more straight forward jobs and took me about 25 minutes or so to complete. These are the steps I took.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS THE APPROACH I TOOK AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, PLEASE, PLEASE SEEK PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE. THE CONSEQUENCES OF GETTING IT WRONG ARE CLEAR TO ALL

 

Now that is out of the way, this is what I did:-

 

These are the brakes bought. They look pretty nice - as brake discs go.

Go the car jacked up and removed the wheel...

I then removed brake calliper of the hub. Just to Alan key headed bolts and done...

Cleaned up the wheel hub with a wire brush and some degreaser...

Cleaned up the discs with some brake disc cleaner ( a pound from pound land :( )

Good amount of copper grease on the hub...

Nice shiny brakes on. Make sure that the disc goes all the way in. A rubber mallet is very effective in tapping into place...

Calliper back on, with the two bolts back on. I used a bit of thread lock for extra safety...

Looking good.

I repeated the process on the other side. I am happy with that, but will have to wait for some dry weather before getting them bedded in properly.

 

For now though, it's job done! :(
