Replacement caliper for the standard Ford M16 caliper, The Wilwood
Powerlite caliper comes with a special mounting bracket to bolt straight
on the Escort strut For SOLID discs(Not included)
The Powerlite caliper features the Wilwood Squeal Reduction System (SRS) eliminating bridge wear caused by pad gouging and reducing the annoying '4-pot squeal'. Also incorporating the now well proven fast pad change clip (patent under consideration).
The Powerlite accepts disc diameters from 240mm to 285mm and 2 disc thickness, solid (9-13mm) or vented (20-22mm). Piston diameters 1.00", 1.25" or 1.38", making this a useful caliper as either a front caliper on small vehicles or a rear caliper on mid range vehicles. The generous pad area should avoid premature wear or pad overheating problems associated with some O/E 2-piston calipers.
Dust seals are not fitted to this caliper, most owners of this type of vehicle usually have a high attention to cleanliness and the additional weight/complexity of dust seals did not seem appropriate - if dust seals are required, then please use the Midilite caliper.
A wide range of pad components are available to suit road, race and off road applications
Please note, recently Wilwood have changed the colour of their callipers from black to grey. While we are working through our stock we cannot guarantee which colour will be available. Should you have any questions, please contact us prior to ordering and we can check for you.
