Hello All, I picked up this 60 SC and the PO didnt know too much about it and I am trying to figure out what disc brakes I have. It has dropped spindles.
Here are some pics.

I think they are the kit brakes from like CP1 but not sure.
The above mentioned SC.

Looks like it has 5x130 adapter, what would be the bolt pattern on rotor?

I don't know the kit... but first guess is '71-'72 Bay Window parts.
Maybe poke around the Bay Window forum, Gallery or Google & see what some '71-'72 calipers look like.

Here's some help with pattern on rotor. Bay Window is 5x112.

looks to be a Wolfgang international disk kit
their kit uses stock 73-79 bus rotors & calipers with a bolt on caliper mount where the backing plate mounts t, been running my kit since 1994
very good maintenance free reliable kit

Could have bought the adapters alone.

How does one tell '71-'72 calipers/rotors from '73-'79?

Figure early is lighter application for Type 1 engine & later is somehow beefier for TIV engine.

Might be good question to post in Bay Window forum (after searching).

Thanks for the info. The brakes work good, only issue I have is there is some type of clicking going on... Its not there when I jack the front end up and spin the wheels but only when driving. Wheels spin nice and free when jacked up.
I completey disconeted the speedo cable so ,its not that. I guess I will pull rotor off and check out the wheel bearings.

71-72 T2 calipers use the same bolt top & bottom 12MM I think
73-79 have 14MM bolts & one is collared(stepped) & are left/right specific

looking at the photo of caliper, you have the pad spring in place, but cant see the shim plate that goes between the back of the b-pad & the caliper piston, this helps the b-pads from rattling
