Hi Jason
I have the adapters cut but I'm struggling to get time to do some final machining and get them to the platers.
Apologies to those waiting.
The 283mm x 22mm rotors are DBA275 from a Peugeot GTi-6 1997-1999.
They're also the same as a Citreon Xantia 2.0i 1993 - 2002.
I also found a place online who sell vented variants but i can't recall the name.


No worries Paul, I'm sure I won't have the time to install the kit for a while anyway, just chasing up loose ends is all.
Thanks for the info on the rotors too, much appreciated. Will try to hunt down the slotted variants you mentioned, they sound like the go.
Cheers, Jason.

Hi Jason
I enquired with these guys regarding the RDA7103S which I think is the 283mm x 22mm rotor required. Just make your own enquiries prior to purchasing. I think they're pricing is also quite reasonable.

Any news on when the RX-7 brake adaptor brackets might be ready?

Paul thats correct. I used the RDA7103S slotted 283x22mm with your brackets and Rx7 callipers. If you dont want slotted just remove the "S" in the part code.

You will need to have the discs re-drilled to suit the hub your are using as the discs were originally a Citreon or Peugot drilling.

I did also have to machine one of the brackets (other one was ok) down 2mm so the disc sat centrally aligned to the calliper, but this may be from a number of things and i dare say was just variance in good old Ford production or something to do with the strut and brake mounts on the strut. Note im using 2.8i struts not escort should that make any difference?
For pics i put some in my (very slow) build thread.

Hi Jason
They're on my "to do" list at the moment but I'm hoping work commitments will settle shortly to allow me to complete a number of outstanding fabrication items.
Apologies for the lengthy delays.

Cheers

Paul

Paul,
 
What size are the pistons in the RX7 caliper?  I've been a googlin' but seen some conflicting info.  Hoping they are about 1.5" (38.1mm).
 
Also, based on that googling session, it appears that the Series 2 and 3 brakes are essentially the same (although cosmetically different) but for the disc size used, the Series 3 (FD) being larger.  Do you whether that is true, and hence whether Series 2 brakes could be used with your brackets?
 
Anybody know what RX7 calipers are selling for these days?
 
Thanks.

Hi. No they're 4 x 36mm bores. Yes the series 2 (FC) and series 3 (FD) are identical apart from the external cosmetic differences.

Cheers

I found people wanting way too much ($300-400) for them here in Australia. As most you would want to do a full overhaul of them anyway..
I just bought mine from the US via ebay. Then got them Soda blasted, and repainted them myself.
Something like this (these seam a bit grubby though but obviously you'd just need to clean them up).

Then you'll need an overhaul kit.

Just keep an eye open online and at wreckers, there actually seems to be a couple cheaper ones on ebay at the moment locally. 
But unless they are fully refurbished and overhauled i wouldnt really want to pay any more than $200..?
