its not a problem if you are rigging up disc brakes for your car however if its got to be sva or biva tested they do a four stage brake test if you do it for your car it will only have to meet mot standards. as for the plates for the discs you can use what you want as long as its man enough. i have got to find out the age of my engine as if its newer than 1992 i will have to fit injection and a cat doh!

As there are so many 126s & 500s running around now with disc brakes it is surprising that there is not more info on the net about the conversion with regards to suitable parts and adaptor plate drawings. I can't seem to find the link that someone posted to the Polish web site that did have a drawing of a plate. Anyway if your cat needs injection get some pet insurance quick  ;D

questions about the f.i.r.e. + 126 gearbox
 who will be able to take the 1st gear noise (larger torque of 1.1)
 is fitting f.i.r.e. gb into 126 very difficult?
and my advise fit 1.2 head on the 1.1 with custom cai, n-group exhaust, computer mods you can acheive about 80 bhp it could be a killer bug :D
my friend had a cc made like that in LPM TUNING in PoznaƄ. it had 84 bhp
...if good thought that frontwheeldrive is better we would ended up walking on hands...

im still think about doing this conversion at some point, i have a spare aircooled that would be suitable.  You can get the bits you need from trs.

well it looks like i am well and truly buggered .. i am going to have to cease my little project due to the fact i will not have the facilities to do the work on the car as i cannot find another garage . i shall be selling all the bits i have (engine ,bits plus bis gearbox, plus exhaust ) i paid 450 for the lot so if anyone wants it they can have it and the gearbox comes free! lol.
i am sorry that i cant continue as my circumstances have changed rapidly and have been forced into this decision , i have the base shell of my "126 roadster" that i shall either sell "as is" if any offers or i will break it up and strip the usefull parts off like hubs suspension steering etc. please contact me if any one is interested via pm . thankyou . mick

Damn, I hope the change of circumstances isn't anything too serious.

Was looking forward to seeing how this progressed too :(

 I thought Mick was too quiet. What a shame. If I had the space for it, would take it on(same old thing)
 Anyway hope you are O.K., and get everything sorted, and someone will save your roadster as well.

Noooooo

You gotta find a way! Can't you just store the engine and so on for a bit until you find somewhere to work on it? fitting it into an otherwise standard shell would only take a week or two.
