    Shorrock supercharger Kent

    Folks,

    I'm preping a 1100 Kent with a Shorrock blower.

    It started life as an 1100 with skinny drums, I've got some early P16 callipers but can't seem to find gallery seals so I can split them and overhaul them thoroughly.

    Not planning on needing spacers for vented discs so all I really need are the seals - can anyone help?

    I plan to do the brakes as a single line non-servo, with a larger master cylinder - Haynes manual suggests some vans were set up like this.

    you do not need to split the calipers if you are just going to do pistons/seals

    'Fraid the calipers need a bit more than new piston seals!

    I don't think they've seen much TLC in the past 40 years!

    They're having the full treatment.

    If the chrome on the pistons is pitted and there's corrosion on them you are wasting your time unless you have a new set of pistons to fit.

    folks,

    still looking for a spec for these seals.

    It ain't knackered 'til it's dust so none of these "issues" are a problem from my perspective. Wouldn't be the first time I've made a set of stainless pistons......

    Have you tried the likes of Big Red Brake’s? They sell all kinds of rebuild kits and remanufacture calipers so should be able to help.
