Is there any were that seel these or are is it a fabricator shop job??
Think you will find they can only be fab'd. I used mk1 rear stub axles and just had the stub machined down to give me a 10mm spacer on my mk1.
We were hoping to bring someone into the Entrepreneurs section to make them, but this has been slow of the ground.
As MK1G20VT says, get some Mk1 (or similar drum-brake) stub axles - & throw them into a local machine shop.
Rite ok thanks for that guys!
what size do you need
im not sure to be honest, im gonna finnish refurbing my speedlines this weekend then ill have to build my back brakes up and do some measurements, why have you got some?
you get brackets on some of the lupo's that would make good spacers
they are 9.5mm and the holes even line up
you may need to trim some of lugs off
they cost 10 each
the p/n 6E0501466A and 6E0501465A
i will try and get a picture up
ok great i mean I have a spare set of drum stubs and access to a lathe in work so ill give that ago, ill also have a look at my etos!
@mushy. thats a great price on those spacers
cheaper than sourcing a second hand set of drum stubs
Very useful - time to go hunting for an ETKA pic!
Bit of a trim round with 1 cutting disc, take the burrs off the edges and it looks good to me:
Do mk3's have the same fitting?
Mk1/2/3/Polo/Ibiza/Lupa all the same I believe?
There may be a date cut off when this changes - anyone?
hear is some pictures of the bracket compared to a polo 6n stub axle
and yes it will fit a mk3 golf
spot on guys thanks very much, ill pop over to my local vw specialist and get them ordered tommoro, need an excuse to and see them anyway!
ps the brackets are only fitted to lupo's
They're rear caliper brackets I guess? I can't figure out why they needed to make them
It's academic, but I'm guessing they're fitted to Arosas too?
yes it for rear caliper to bolt to
as far as i can see it is only the lupo that has them
i got them to see if i could bolt 256mm rear brakes off a V5 or 4motion
on to the mk2/3 beem
but it has been sat on my desk ever since
now i have a sticky caliper on the 4motion
i will try it in the summer i still have to make some spacers up
it will probably not work but just want to see
You could have a spacer profile cut out of anything between 1 & 25mm proiding you had it Drawn up on CAD
you could but it is all down to cost and most paces that do this want to make a bob or two
you really need someone to do it as a homer
