I got a new set of new LH & RH type 12 calipers for the daughters Mk2 Spit around 20yrs ago from a chap who used to race Formulea Vee he advised they were used on those models, maybe worth a check up to see availability?

If you get desperate I have a couple of pairs of type 12 out in the garage.

No idea what condition but I thunk 1 set was last on the road in mid70s as they came off a Herald I rescued from a garage that had had a heavy front end crash, twice. Don't think the type 12 s matched the tuned engine the guy had fitted.

Thanks, as long as they can be brought back to life with a seal kit, I’m very interested, can you drop me a text to 07801 239050 to let me kNow what you want for them?

cheers

Mike

Wish mine were in that condition, I've just started refurbishing a pair... whilst looking for other parts I found stainless pistons, seal kits and even the little round seal for the two caliper halves in a drawer, so as I am doing nothing else at present, I may as well. I think I'll have fun getting the pistons out of the other one...

I have a second pair with moving pistons, and a third pair that look about the same as your other one, but one f the pistons did move under air pressure amazingly.
