Question:
I purchased this kit for my 63 Morris Minor about 2 yrs ago. my understanding is that these discs, calipers, and pads are MG Midget parts. if that is true what years MG Midget? I am still experiencing problems with the car stopping and a friend suggested that the pads may be too hard and that I should try to find some softer ones but I want to be sure I'm ordering the right pads. thanks
Answer:
Hello,

GBP281 are the pads that come in the kit. Other options are EBC Green stuff or Ultimax Pads would be considered a performance upgrade (likely not softer)
perhaps a consideration.. what brake master cylinder are you using?

FOLLOW UP QUESTION:  I have a 1" diameter cylinder with a 7" dual diaphragm vacuum booster with a vacuum pump. have also considered going to a smaller bore master but having a hard time finding one that will fit the booster. this car was purchased with extensive modifications, it had two gt6 master cylinders installed, one for the front and one for the rear and the original drum brakes all around.with that setup it would hardly stop at all. I installed the disc brakes kit and it still wouldn't stop, then I thought I was getting pedal feedback from the rear brakes and front weren't do anything because of the volume difference, so I tied the systems together and that improved stopping considerably but still not good, that's when I decided on a vacuum booster, and again, better but still not great.

FOLLOW UP ANSWER:  How about the type or condition of the brake hoses? are these standard rubber hoses? If so... and if not new (even if they are new) they are probably deforming, causing some of your performance issues.. no reason a car with such brakes wouldn't brake well considering all parts are in good working order. If they are rubber hoses, consider a stainless braided hose that will offer consistent pressure and less deformation for better braking performance.

FOLLOW UP QUESTION 2: ok, I have found a master cylinder that will go on the booster with a 3/4" bore, that should almost double the braking pressure the 1" bore cylinder only has about an inch of pedal travel so the reduced volume shouldn't be a problem.I will change the hoses at the same time, do you guys carry the hoses? it a 1963 Morris Minor 1000

FOLLOW UP ANSWER #2: We have a set of front and rear hoses here: CBS122-BRAIDED
