1997 NAS 90 Front Brake Info Wanted

No I don't have a '97 NAS but on my rebuild the front axle has taken the direction of an NAS '97 D90 front brake (after studying the various parts vendors for the past few days).


Here is what I have:
- Disco I Axle housing cut/modded to fit Toyota HP 3rd.
- Swivel Balls with Railco top bushing/bearing (used on Disco I's with ABS and only the '97 NAS 90 - from my understanding) Part #FTC5105
- Swivel housings (a RHD on the left side, a LHD on the right side so it can be used on a RHD or LHD build)
- 606666 bearing kit on the bottom, STC226/FTC125 (Disco I and '97 NAS top - FMU)
- Stub Axle - FTC3154 (Disco I and all NAS 90's - FMU)
- Vented Disc Brake Rotor - FTC902 (all NAS 90's)
- Brake Calipers - STC1266 and STC1267 (all NAS 90's)


Here is the tricky part. I want to order hard brake lines. AB has '97 specific stainless (http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ANR5786SS.cfm & http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ANR5785SS.cfm) that should work but my problem is the brake pipe bracket. I would think the FRC7201 and FRC7202 will not work as there is no hole for the ABS module that the '97's came with and more importantly the angle of the bracket might not work. Or will it? Trying to figure it out.


CLIFF NOTES: If you have a picture of a 1997 NAS 90 front brake system with the wheel off please post. Or the part number of the left and right side pipe bracket. Thanks!

If you happen to pop and inner axle out on the trail, you can unbolt the caliper and move it out of the way without cracking open the hydraulics. Keeps your axle repair from needing to bleed the brakes as well.

Thanks guys.


robertf - I had the Defender vented rotors and pads sitting on the shelf from when I started this axle for my '95 NAS. I figured it would be just easier to get Defender calipers and they are larger too IIRC.


Jeff - I do have the Disco brake plate already so I might just mod that for it to work. I know I am overthinking it as I have a tendency to do on certain things. Good call on the slot - will add that to the plate mod.


BTW, got that part striped primed and painted with Eastwood Chassis Black. It's looking good!

Not just for a broken axle, but also for routine maintenance of your hub bearings.

Be sure to use RTC3511 hub seals.

Nice! Thanks for that pic.

10-4 on the RTC3511 - I have been used them on my 90 and have them already installed.

I just did this to a set of D1 brackets for a hybrid I'm building.
