19/02/2005 12:03:58   Rob   has anyone had any succes with this? i was thinking of converting to 99/early 900 brakes - do the splines in the hubs line up? - i know i would have to get the caliper brackets fabricated

this way i could also use 4 bolt ronal minilites which are pretty cheap

does anyone in the uk have the special tool puller (if they wouldnt mind lending me :-) ?)


cheers guys

I'd be interested to find out if it's possible.
You'd have to change to whole hub assembly at the back as 99/900's have disc brakes all round and think about handbrake operation.
I don't think you need a specific SAAB puller to get the hubs off, a decent 'universal' one should do the job.

I currently have two refurbished sets, with centre caps - should this be of interest to anyone.  
22/02/2005 21:27:48   Rob   does anyone have any contact details for this guy in sweden?
did he do anything to the rear brakes?

which mk escort do we think is maybe compatable?

cheers

The drums go straight on with a spacer, there's some engineering needs to be done for the front. Exactly what I don't know.
