To adjust when it's in front of you. Not above your head in cramped quarters.
Just about any Japanese disc brake that includes hand brake actuation ... or FIAT 124/125 calipers (which I have used and they work well). Yes there will be some engineering to mount them, but then the only time you will ever have to touch the rear calipers is to change pads.replace them with what exactly..you have my full attention since ive got a fetta a gtv6 and well the lloyd as well as the g-sprint on the gtv6 chassis
i need to clearly sit down and have a chat with you then.....as ive rebuilt enough sets of the OE ones enough times to be sick of them....and would love something that works as good or better thats less.....tempermentalJust about any Japanese disc brake that includes hand brake actuation ... or FIAT 124/125 calipers (which I have used and they work well).

Even if I owned a mint Sud or Alfetta/GTV6 I would bin those calipers. They have been replaced with better moderner designs
Well I don't like them. Had them on my Sud and used to drive me crazy trying to pass the handbrake test every 6 months for the safety inspection.SINGLE piston brakes, Pete? Pshaw. Maybe on a Panda, but we Milano owners are above such feeble things!
Anyway, assuming they're not seized or something I always found the 75/Milano rear brakes to work fine, and I daily drove that car for ten years. I think the biggest problem is that most people just don't adjust them right.
It's not very hard, you just need to know how to do it and there's a few little tricks to it. The tip I found that Ranz reposted above helps a lot. I also suspect the system likes to trap a little air back there, and felt like they generally benefited from a second rebleed after a few miles if air had been introduced into the lines.
Beyond that, if you adjust them properly to start with then the pistons and parking brake will self-adjust properly: you shouldn't need to touch them again until you need new pads.
And cut a hole in the floor and when you need to park, poke a crowbar down through the hole to lock an axle105 calipers bolt straight on.
