MG MGF Technical - Age related moment
|Tell me I'm paranoid. TF/F flexible brake pipes are identical aren't they?|
Only asking as F Goodrich kits are available, but not for TF. Otherwise will have to make my own up!
|According to the EPC, there are two hoses listed - one for cars pre-2D 600100, and those after this VIN. |
However, I suspect that they aren't that different - can anyone comment?
|From memmory I'd say the stock brakehoses used for my F had a different "point" sticking out of it to "slot" it in on the side of the brake caliper compared to the hoses I got with my TF160 (2003) brakes. They were compatible anyway in my case.|
|I assume the rear may be different due to the big suspension arm and different space ??|
Not sure !!
I recall the original hose end joints at the old MGF had been zink plated (yellow coloured, Chrome VI content). Not RoHS compliant.
May be the reason for another P/N change could be the change to none hazardous surface treatment. (Zink blue)
Just an idea.
|Could be Dieter. Would be good to get a new set of both and put them next to one another for comparison.|
Jerry, I would suggest sale or return basis for taking your project forward :o)
Hoses on order this am. Let you know the outcome. It's not fatal if the rears are a bit short, as the hose is cheaper than the fittings, and a longer length can be fitted.
|Got a set of Mike Satur Goodridge hoses on now. No problems at all. The four hoses supplied were the same, F rear ones I think. Bit of cling film and elastic band on the master cylinder, swop over, gravity bleed, done in no time!!|
The old TF fronts were about 30cm, rears 34cm if any help.
|Jerry, Thank You.|
>fronts about 30cm, rears 34cm
good to know
