What hoses?

It's all about the bolt fixture. ST's will do you fine, or just get escort ones and longer banjoo bolt.

 

I had goodridge MkI ST24 on a Mondi and I sold them on... Looked very flimsy and untrustworthy, so I decided to make my own braided items from standard fittings.

 

Anybody got good experience with Goodridge ?

I have currently Goodridge ones, and happy, although rs2k fitment!

 

Could you explain more about bolt fitment please :blush:

 

Well you can try keeping the same hoses with at least 15 mm longer banjoo caliper bolt. Try local motor factors - especially race and rally prep places have a lot different fitments - M10 x 1.5 is most common IIRC. And new copper washers.

 

 

TOP GEAR !

john mk1 mondy hoses,its what i have on mine.

 

what braided do you have john? are they made up ones?

 

Currently RS2000 Mk5 all round, were a goodridge set I got off ebay

No idea, i'd take both types of hose to a hydraulic hose maker and get some custom ones made up.

 

I have in the past doubled up on copper washers though.

 

Ok cheers for the input
