PLUS 2 ELAN BRAKE CONVERSION INSTRUCTION NOTES.
This conversion is extremely worthwhile as it it transforms the braking and improves the balance of brakes front to rear. In standard form the Elan is over braked at the rear.
However as with many standard and modified parts for the Elan it is the classic case of squeezing a quart into a pint pot so some modifications may be needed.
Customers may need professional help with this installation.
The suggested fit up procedure is as follows.
Carefully and gently fit the parts and see if on your car there are any clearance problems or interferences.
If the the track rod ends are too close to the disc then carry out the the modification done to the 26R Elan for the Girling AR caliper, Large 26R disc and Caliper Bracket fitment.
See separate instruction sheet.
If the caliper is too close to the wheel or interferes then carefully with an angle grinder and a fine to medium sanding disc chamfer the outside edge of the caliper just sufficient for clearance. The Plus 2 caliper has very thick wall castings which allow this.
If the cast iron hub interferes then you can have a suitable chafer or radius machined on it using a lathe. Your local machine shop can do this.
When you are happy with your clearances the bolt everthing up together tightly.
