Front calipers for vented rotors

Does anyone have Defender front calipers for the vented type rotors?

I might have it but not sure as I have few new calipers that I don't know the applications. Pictures of what you need will help. Anyway, will bring it this Sunday.

Can't you put a spacer plate in the existing caliper ... I saw this on a 110 caliper rebuild once upon I cant recal when.

hmmm, I guess you can? If fluid is still able to flow to the other side of the piston I guess it would work.

Been a while since I last looked but I think a set of rebuilt caliper's where really cheap. Or you can probably get the spacer made for small money if you can't buy it on its own I would have thought. It is just a spacer, you can see it in the pic. Get a caliper rebuild kit if you do it that way as you should replace those seals when you split them. You'll need the longer bolts as well.

You can use the vented rotors and the caliper spacer from a rrc with vented rotors. The spacer will fit between the disco calipers. You'll need the longer caliper bolts from the rrc too. I'm doing this on my series build too. Havent gotten there yet but have all the parts assemble to do so. Find a rrc in the junkyard, pull the calipers cause you'll need other stuff too like the pins for the pads. Hope this helps.
