If i use the cinquecento/seicento/Punto calliper set up is it just fitting or is it necessary to adapt? What are adapter plates? Are steering knuckle? I know the pieces, but in Portuguese, in English it is more complicated to understand the pieces ... my 126 is from the first series, I do not know if to make the conversion makes difference from the second series. I still do not have any parts to apply, I wanted to know what I need to know and what model to buy later. But I do not know what car is best to arrange to make the conversion and the exact parts that are needed.

These are all the parts you need. The adapter plates are needed to bolt the calipers too. These adapters should fit your series 1 car. To fit the adapter plate you need to remove the drum and the back plate then the adapter plates will fit onto the hub (where the backplate was) then the calliper will bolt onto the adapter plate.

And where did you get these adapter plates? Are they only needed for front braking? The rest of the used parts were of which car?

I got them from eBay. Rear disc conversions work on the same principal - by that I mean using adapter plates made for the rear using rear calipers from a punto hgt. Everything in that picture is all you need no other parts needed, you can even use the hoses.

Fun day out at Festival Italia on Sunday. There were only 3 126s there so one of the rarer Italian machines at the show but people loved it. Despite luigis poor running he got me there and back ok (just!). I’m convinced the issue is down to an air leak somewhere but can’t locate it. The only thing to do is remove the carb and manifold and work my way forward.
