Thanks for that Bob I had always believed them to be Princess one's.
Good luck with the fix.

Reference the Austin Princess connection Jon

Apparently they are similar to the princess caliper but not the same. The princess caliper is a 'dual system with a link pipe' whist the Morgan unit has a piston seal with a 'scraper ring'. None of which means a great deal to me but I am assured it is so. Indeed if you look at the princess calipers on e-bay the drillings appear to be in different locations. Besides a simple equivalent just wouldn't be Morgan would it.


Very interesting, because they take Princess pads, from your era right up to current MMC production

The kit was identical to the bits I took out and also includes the gallery seals. These are the square section seals that join the two halfs of the callipers together. Without these you can't separate the two halfs which makes the rebuild more difficult. Talking to the guy from Powertrack, his kit does not have these gallery seals and he did not know where to source them. They will also rebuild for you. Full marks to Bigg Red. 01905 428793 calipers@biggred.co.uk (no financial interest, other bigg reds may be available etc. etc.). swear mad evil mad2 swmbo uk


Thanks for the supplier tip off, never heard of Bigg Red before, but they're in my supplier database now
