    Then get them home and find out that they don't open as wide as the 76-78 Eldo calipers. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    The caliper arms and return springs don't open as wide? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The caliper won't fit over 3/4-ton rotors with new brake pads. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif They open about 1/4-inch less than the Eldo calipers. If you always used half-worn pads out back, then you might get them to work. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
