    I just saw my friends disks on his 14b. There is four nuts bolted to the housing with small spacer. Now, wouldn't it be stronger to have a full circle spacer? Also he has a hard line right in to the caliper. How can that be? I would think the caliper moves as least a little. Sorry for the ignorance on this just trying to understand.

    thx mike

    Depends on the tension in the bolts and the OD & length of the spacers.

    Hard line can be used w/o a section of flex hose. The downside to doing it this way is that Fatigue will eventually break the line if an expansion loop or loops aren't put in the line.

    OK so the spacers are not a big deal. Do you mean a coil so it can move a little? Thats the only thing i can think of to have one.

    I think the full spacer idea myself. Thats why I went with DIY4x's brackets!!! They are very nice and come with all the hardware. Plus Kert is great to deal with!

    Also, hardlines going to the caliper make it a pain to change the pads. More than likely he'll have to disconnect the hardline and then need to bleed the brakes.
