|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 :-) ?)

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?
|23/02/2005 09:39:17||Senor Burt||I seem to remember it's MK II for the front, MK IV for the rear drums.
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.
