I just did a search on this but couldn't find an answer.
Tonight I tried to bolt up my PBR dual piston calipers. Although they seem to fit perfectly with alignment of the rotor and the bolt hols in the SN95 spindles, the caliper actually hits the spindle preventing it from moving.
I'd post a picture, but my website isn't up yet. Basically the caliper hits round eye holes on the SN95 spindle right where the bolts go through.
Have others had this problem? Did you just grind the spindle to make them fit???

Thanks guys. I kinda figured that was the case. This might become a good post for the "tips" area if more and more people will be using the newer spindles and breaks.
I've been trying to find time to get the new website up Damon, but it's slow going lately.
I actually did some pretty cool frame mods by completely removing the 3/4 tubes that run forward from the firewall and welding in some 1.5" round tubing in a relocated spot so that it clears for a power brake booster. I can't wait to share some of those mods with the forum.
As posted before, it takes very little metal removal on the cast tabs to make them fit. Hope it works out. Never panic as it only causes more posting with the accompanied harrasment .
I hope to see more posts from your build.
