`61 Giulietta Spider, `65 Giulia Ti 1750, `69 GT junior 1600, `73 Spider 2000, `74 GTV 2000, `98 156
Just started overhauling our `61 Giulietta Spider`s brakes - new linings via AlfaStop, adjusters, wheel cylinder kits etc etc and the car appears to have front brake drums on the rear brakes . In addition the shoes although the same shape as the pictures I see on the AlfaStop site are the same width as the front shoes as is the friction material. The rear shoe material sent to us by AlfaStop is much narrower and the rivet holes do not match the shoes taken off the vehicle so obviously wrong. I`ve tried to find out whether there is a difference with some cars having bigger shoes/drums on the rear but can`t find any mention on either AlfaStop`s site, or any literature I have. There must have been an option however as the shoes are definitely correct rear shoes but match the drums. Was there an option on higher performance versions or something done in the US as a common modification? The car despite being a Normale has a Veloce engine minus carbs fitted and has obviously been played around with. It originates from the US.
