Fred,

You are right, we need (I need) to be careful with comments. However, wrong or right, we are entitled to post our comments. Folks like yourself, who have had experience with certain brands or vendors can step up and dispel comments such as mine. I don't mind making mistakes, but I do mind contributing to mis-information. It's nice to know that the Centric brand is a good brand. I respect your opinion and appreciate your correction.

I tend to stay away from the cheap option on any replacement part for my car, especially something so important as brakes. A friend of mine once bought re-manufactured calipers for his Alfa. The cylinder bores had a small amount of media in them that should have been remove prior to assembly. He's really lucky he caught it before it became a problem.

According to Rock Auto, the front calipers are unique to Alfas and 1976 Porsche 912. The rear calipers are unique to Alfas.

I have some caliper cores available. Not sure how the credit will work since you will be paying by NZ CC. I see that Ken had problems with that. I bought some Rock Auto calipers and they seem to be fine. The Ate logo was NOT on the castings, however, so maybe they are using some Chinese casting? Pistons were installed correctly and all the hardware was new. (pistons, seals, pad retaining springs and pins)

Hi Stu, I will be paying with a US credit card registered to a US address in USD, so I doubt that will be an issue. Shall I PM you?

Just make sure the caliper cores are the early ATE ones with the pin in the centre of the piston bore. If the later 2000 cores there is no pin and the pistons are different AND therefore you will have to change your master cylinder.
