The mounting holes for the brake backplates do not align with a bracket for the 105E, as Ken states. They aren’t sufficiently displaced to allow welding and drilling. Also, if you fit 105E-ish hubs to the front, you have a stud spacing of 4.25″ p.c.d. so you’d need to do something to the rear, which would remain at 5.5″, or run two different wheel types.
Thanks for this. Looks like it will be harder than I thought. Is there an alternative strut/hub arrangement that might fit on a 107E, or will I have to make some kind of compromise? My old drum brakes just aren’t sharp enough for when idiots pull out directly in front of me.
None that I know of. The old way was to fit Classic / Capri struts, but these also need the appropriate track control arms, giving a wider track and negative camber. You still have the issue of the wheel stud spacing. Actually, I’ve always found the 107E brakes more than adequate: the MoT tester always commented on the exceptionally high readings. The big advantage of disc brakes is the reduction of fade rather than greater efficiency.
Everything needs to be working as designed, though.
