Hi guys,

Thanks,

Thanks guys.
mepstein, where exactly would the bump be on a -4 rear caliper?
Thanks again for the help in confirming.
Bill.

Lol. No way, just 2% of what Eric Shay knows. Maybe less.

Don't mean to hijack a thread but I think the OP got his question answered. I have a similar question. Can anyone tell me what I have here? NOS units. I thought they were for a 914 (4?) but now Im thinking they are not.

Eric can tell just by looking. I can't. But if you measure the mounting holes, six (M) calipers would measure 3" from center to center. 4's will be less.

Thr fronts are -6. You can tell by the spacers. They are late model because they have the cup pistons.

I thought the spacers were only for vented discs. And the 914-6 didn't have vented discs from the factory. So they're not -6 calipers. They're 911 calipers.

Even if they were front 6 calipers, they aren't special. They're just 911 calipers, you can get them all day long relatively cheap and the spacers can be added if desired.

The rear 6 calipers are unique to the six and command a higher price because of rarity.

Actually they also are used on the Fararri 308 with spacers and twice the price.
I know where you can get a set that has already been assembled with new parts by PMB, if anyone is interested. PM mikey914

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) Apparently they did. Actually, now that I think about it. I don't think I've ever had a six with stock brakes in the shop. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) Still learning new things everyday, just like everyone else.

I thought stock 6's had solid rotors and GT's were vented.

Six's came with the same brakes as a 911T in front. . 3 inch bolt spacing calipers, vented rotors. .
Rear brakes were solid rotors and calipers had a smidgen bigger piston the the 4's.

Interesting. Thanks for info. I had purchased and installed some M calipers on the front of one of my 6 conversions. They are solid rotors. I wonder if they came from a 912.
