Hi,
I am trying to upgrade the front brakes of my Fiat 16 VT by the Brembos of the 20VT. For this I am profitting of the great source of information that is our Forum. The guide that I am using is the one below.
My doubt is that after googling searching for all the needed pieces, I found as an alternative to the hub carriers / uprights replacement, the use of an adapter bracket for the Brembos.
So, can someone tell me if this is a good (and safe!) option?
Where can I find these adapters?
I thank you very much for the support.
best regards
Joaquim

It is an acceptable method, common on aftermarket brake kits or for say classic cars where no plug and play options exists.

I don't believe brackets are available off the shelf so you'll need to engineer the brackets yourself.

I have seen bracket patterns around but for Alfa 166 calipers which are slightly different.

When you say acceptable method, I believe that means the first option (hubs) is better...
So, as my 16vt is still a "baby" and my engineer skills are not that good, I will look for the hubs which, by the way, has not been easy to find.
Thanks
Joaquim

Can someone tell me what are the OEM part numbers of the hub carriers of the 20VT?
Thanks

I think your best bet would be to speak with Countrycrusing / Joe on here. He should have spares for all of this, but the cost to Portugal could be expensive
