MG MGA - 1500 MGA Brakes
|Can someone tell me if the front brake back plates are specific to each side? After looking at the picture in the workshop manual I think I might have two right hand ones.|
|If my memory is correct - there is a stamping of "L" or "LH" or "R" or "RH". Take a good look and see if you see the stamping. If there both the same you'll have to find its mate. Good Luck.|
|You can see the RH stamp in the attached picture. The back plates are LH and RH to keep the brake cylinders symmetrical.|
|I believe they are handed to avoid fouling the brake cylinders on the steering arm.|
