MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - Brake Disks??

Are the MGB brake disks the same as the V8's? I checked the dimensions of the B and the V8 spec's on the following website:

http://www.mgcars.org.uk/MGB/mgbgtv8spec.html

http://www.mgcars.org.uk/MGB/mgbspec.html

and they appear to be the same size, but are they the same? I.e. can I replace my front disks with a standard set of MGB brake disks?

Thanks

Nope, BV8 dics are thicker.
Jake

Thanks Jake, I thought they were different. Does anyone know a good (cheap?) source for replacement disks?

If that is 11 quid each that is cheap, my regular V8 supplier is showing 69 quid per pair.
Paul Hunt

excuse me, the prices increased, brembo for MGB 19.95 each, for V8 36.92 each.

Andy,

If looking for V8 discs, try Peugeots 604 discs. Cheaper & good availability. I could even order them that way, x-drilled and perfect fit. If you want to, I can send you details.

A plain vented disc for B is 25 each and drilled 38, just need diff calipers.

From where Paul?

These are vented (270x24) for use with Wilwood or adapted other calipers, but should also be available from Cambridge Motorsport but not checked price
