Re: '91 Bluebird Disc Brake Caliper
i called the guy who sold me the bus and used to own a fleet. he told me that the part i called a "saddle" is called a block. it's a seperate piece(s) that sits between the caliper and the anchor (caliper support). i searched out this block and found a reference to it on a forum at pirate4x4.com and this seems to be it:
"If you have the Bendix style retainer with the h-block and bolt retainer for it, the top of the caliper sildes into the V in the top of the bracket, and the h-block is driven into the opening between the bottom of the caliper and the bottom of the bracket.
If you don't have the bolthole on the bottom and have a V in the bottom of the bracket too, you need to use the goofy Ford retainers with the rubber center in them which drive in top and bottom. The H-block was used until 10/85, the Ford style is later."
if this above image works, it's from their forum too, and looks like mine.
pretty certain i have the latter Ford style.
the guy who sold me the bus told me that there is an accessory kit that has this hardware and i should get be able to get it at any truck parts. i've already ordered, 3 different kits from napa, but none had these blocks. i've searched some sites with the #'s bluebird in quebec gave me, but they don't have the blocks in the pics i saw. i tried calling bendix directly yesterday & today, but just messages (i'll call them monday along with your connection, grey eagle)
in the meantime i'll continue to search out what # accessory kit goes with my brake system.
