I need 4x caliper bolts that mount the calipers to the stub axles, and then the brake line bracket to calliper. Anybody have spares ?

A Head for Healey has them for £6 each $8 each plus shipping but would be easier to find locally in US.

Thanks
Lew

Lew,
I have a box of bolts at the farm and also in my shop and may have what you need. Can you post the dimensions? I plan on being home Wednesday or Thursday.

Hi Rut,

I will try and find a size from one of the suppliers. The bolts are those staggered type, #4 in attached pic. These are for a Big Healey, so normally one size larger than same function on a Sprite !

Sold a disc brake setup and these were missing, so I told the buyer I would find or buy some for him. Wasn't expecting $80 from Vic Brit or Moss !!

Any help appreciated.

Cheers
Lew

Lew,
I misread your post and I know I don’t have any 3000 parts. I see your name and immediately think Bugeye!
Sorry, Rut

Not a misread, as I edited my first post after your first reply, thinking that you were thinking it was for a Bugeye. LOL !

This disc brake setup was a left over from my 100-6 Healey which I sold - also have a rebuilt 2.6L and center shift gearbox to sell before heading back to Australia next year ! Or maybe I should wedge it in to a Bugeye !

Cheers - Happy New Year !

Lew,

Why not take one of those old bolts down to the ACE Hardware store and see what they have?
There's a FINE THREAD selection somewhere in the store.
I've found a number of bolts for my car there.

Hiawatha Fasteners or FASTENAL might also have what you need and
check out McMaster-Carr if you know the size and thread pitch.

Good luck,
Peter
