Using the proven BCC design the caliper is machined from Aerospace grade Aluminium for strength and durability. BCC calipers are sulphuric or hard anodised to prevent corrosion and then assembled. The pistons are made by BCC from Stainless Steel to prevent corrosion and ensure a long life of faultless operation. The seals are supplied by British manufacturers of OEM automotive hydraulic seals. BCC calipers are fastened together with 10.9 grade high tensile steel bolts or high grade Stainless Steel bolts certified to grade 10.9. They are supplied with Copper/Nickel Alloy hard lines with Brass fittings and EBC Ultimax 2 pads (Other pad options are available).

Copper-Nickel pipes, brass bleed and feed unions
Stainless steel pistons
Anodised Aluminium/Stainless Steel
Bridge pipes to keep the fluid cooler instead of internal porting
Each BCC brake caliper kit includes a complete bolt-on axle set, comprising a pair of BCC 4pot calipers, EBC Ultimax brake pads (including pins, clips and springs), bleed nipples, bridge and feed pipes. Each kit is a simple bolt-on installation requiring no permanent modification to the vehicle and is completely reversible. [Vented kits for cars equipped with solid brake discs as standard, and drum to disc conversions will include brake discs and caliper mount plates where applicable.

Our calipers are designed to be a straight bolt-on replacement for your existing brakes with no modification to your vehicle. However please bear in mind that car production decades ago was far less consistent than today’s standards and minor differences are often found in classic vehicles.
We have been switching from e-clips to R-clips on our brake pad retaining pins to make assembly and changing pads easier (customer feedback told us e-clips tend to ping across the garage when fitting!). Some of our pins still use e-clips so we recommend using a small flat head screwdriver to push them into place
It is crucial that brakes are fitted by a competent person, if you are unsure about any part of the fitting process please refer to a professional.
