Default 407 front calipers

me again, still trying to get my car MOT'd.
Problem now with front disc brakes, which I think are Dunlops, piston jammed on and other leaking badly. Are there any spares for these brakes OR should I replace the entire calipers with something with a bit more meat??

Default 407 Brake Calipers etc

As they say, further to other replies, everything for the Dunlop Brakes are easily and readily available.
Past Parts of Bury St Edmunds, not only supply the parts from stock but will re-sleeve brake cylinders.
The brakes were used in Jaguar E types etc from 1961 to 1963 for instance. Do not be tempted to change to cooper kraft as the dunlop's give readings at MOT time better than many modern cars.

I have had my 407 since 1999 so have had to source lots of parts. Any help willingly given.


Do not forget to try Brian Marelli as Bristol Cars Service.
