Thread: JFZ brake kit

    Default JFZ brake kit

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if a JFZ brake and spindle kit could be bought from Ford Motorsport back in the days? I believe I've seen a Ford Motorsport part no. stamped on the calipers, I will have to double check this.

    Never seen anything like that, and I've never heard of JFZ.

    I believe JFZ was one of the big names in the 80s.


    The reason I ask, is that I also got these.

    Default FPP M-2300-D kit

    The caliper p/n solved the question.
    Seen in FPP SVO 1990 catalog, page 111
    Not listed in 1991 or 1993 catalog. One year only?
    Catalogs sure had tons of goodies back then.

    That is amazing they had that brake kit back in the day. I am only 35, I always wanted to know what was available back then. Thanks for sharing that page from the svo catalog.

    I guess the real question is, is it any good? What diameter are the rotors?

    It says 12 x 1.25" for both front and rear rotors, in the catalog.

    That's an impressive history lesson. Seems like back in the 80's and 90's, everyone I knew was throwing flowmasters and 3.73's at the Mustangs. It's cool to see that there were brake performance stuff available. We didn't care about stopping at that time!

    Larger pic as requested
    Taken with smartphone at lowest rez 2.0m 1600 x 1200
    This is the original file before i shrunk it for posting.
    Zoom screen shot for larger pic.

    If not enough detail, like say for the hardware, can take new pic.
    Max is 5.0m 2576 x 1932, detail is limited by catalog photo rez of kit.
    Viewing the catalog pic with a magnifying glass, it is pixel-ated.

    I did a little more digging on this because I was curious. Apparently JFZ was taken over by Sierra Racing Products in 1993. I can find precious little information about Sierra Racing Products, but they were taken over by Joe's Racing Products sometime after 2007 I believe (how long after 2007 I cannot say). I haven't been able to find much for them other than brake pads since it looks like they use the same pad as a Wilwood caliper does.

    Definitely interesting stuff! As I said in my initial reply, I'd never heard of them, so gr79's pic of the catalog is enlightening.
