Default Girling brake calipers

Power Trak in the UK, and many others, have rebuilt calipers available.
On CSX2367 I’ve rebuilt every part of the brake and clutch system utilizing the original cores, relined in brass or stainless by White Post. Dave.

Are they Girling 16/3 calipers?
Rebuilding them isn't a big deal. Just make sure you buy the correct parts. I used stainless steel pistons on mine as the originals are prone to rusting. Properly plated too, not just paint!
Don't loose the spacers between the caliper halves either! Near impossible to replace!

One thing I feel I should add. Assuming the car has its original brakes now, don’t trade them in on something else just because it fits. Keep the original parts with the car! There are other calipers that fit but aren’t exactly the same as original. Keep it as original as possible!

These are the ones that I received from BG Development in the UK for my 289 FIA.



They have rotors as well.
