Below are sizes of the old and new XL brake systems.
There are 4 issues where we would like some help (We simply don't have a Fiat 124)
- There is a gap of 5 mm (The shaft is 5 mm longer)
- The diameter of the booster is 243 mm (where the old was 182 mm)
- The mounting studs are reduced to 2 pieces with a diagonal distance of 95 mm
- The new brake master cylinder has the brake pipes coming in from the side (see photo)
Does the 5 mm extension of the shaft matter at all. If it does matter, put on shims to the 2 mounting pins (until it does not matter).
This is probably the most critical issue. On the LADA we have a hydraulic clutch master cylinder that will hit the booster canister.
Is it possible to drill 2 new holes right there ?
It must depend on what else is in the way (Carburetor, Volumex-compressor ..). The brake pipes are however pulled back 6 cm compared to the old design.
Minor issues LADA World will fix for you:
In the brake-pipes, you will also need a T-piece since the new design only gives 2 connections whereas the old design gave 3 connections.
A new brake fluid canister is needed (We are not 100% sure, please confirm)
Please help us to answer the list of issues (1 to 4).
