Ford Brake Disc Part N° ??

Postby pgp001 » Mon Jul 09, 2018 7:26 am

Hi all

I am looking at replacing the discs on my Traveller with some new ones, I know they are Ford ones because the name is cast into the caliper.
I have seen reference to them being original fitment on a MK3 Escort and having a Mintex part number MDC392.

I can buy a pair of new Ford discs for about half the price that the specialist Morris parts suppliers are charging for the modified ones, so for me it it makes sense to do it this way.
I have my own workshop facilities for modifying them with a set of new stud holes on the correct PCD, but just wanted someone to confirm I have the right part number for the discs, and that the only modification required is to add the four new stud holes please.

Thanks
Phil

You need to re PCD the discs, there are a few different ways to do this, but I'm sure you know the best, and you may need to open up the centre bore, but it depends on who's kit you have. Our kit has the larger centre spigot , to locate the Minor wheel correctly rather than relying on the studs to centre the wheel.

Thankyou, I have now found that the part number is the correct one for future reference.
