Brake Hose Conversion: Metro Calipers To Mini Single Line

Brake Hose Conversion: Metro Calipers To Mini Single Line

Brake Hose Conversion: Metro Calipers To Mini Single Line
Brake hose kit to convert Metro calipers to fit single line mini systems. Uses braided hoses, not rubber.
To ensure maximum pipe clearances, the main feed pipe should be screwed into the lower of the feed holes, through one end of the link pipe. The other end of the link pipe should then be connected to the calliper by one of the banjo bolts provided. Ensure a copper washer is fitted on either side of the banjos to effect a fluid tight seal. The link pipe should be curved towards the front of the calliper (away from the calliper to the hub mounting bolts). The end of the feed pipe with the large union can be connected to the subframe in the usual way.
