Caliper for disc Brakes.



Calipers are used with disc brakes. Datsun B110, B210 and B310 used floating two-piston ANETTE types. These were designed by Lucas Girling which designed the Anette, Babette and Colette series.

1969 Annette: Fixed twin-piston with floating caliper (yoke type), as used by B110/B210/B310
1974 Colette: Single-sided (fist type) floating caliper as typified by S13 Brakes

Hardware Kit

When changing the brake pads, the old hardware can usually be re-used. But if the anti-squeal shims are missing or the springs damage, new ones can be purchased.

A disc brake "hardware kit" includes all the small parts (although individual parts are also available at parts stores).


* BENDIX H5564
* EIS H155242
* RAYBESTOS H155242 (dual kit)
* RAYBESTOS H15524 (single kit)
* WAGNER F96607
* CARLSON 13114
* CENTRIC 11742027
* DORMAN HW13114

Some kits are dual (does both front brakes) other kits you need two of them.

The Wagner kit additionally includes new yoke springs, so you don't have to clean the old ones to make sure the Yoke (caliper plate) slides smoothly.

To remove the caliper, the POST strut must be rotated a little.

  • Loose the bottom caliper bolt
  • Remove the top caliper bolt and swing the caliper out slightly in order for the strut bolt to come out past the piston
  • loosen both strut-to-knuckle bolts just slightly
  • on the side where the caliper bolt won't come out, completely remove the strut-to-knuckle bolt
  • rotate the strut a little bit. Now the caliper bolt can be removed


From 1989, Sunny Truck came standard with front disc brakes.
