quite a bit of machining. the rotors are mounted to the back of vanette hubs as they have the correct offset, 4 stud and use the same wheel bearings ( but not oil seal). make sure the stuts are "armstrong" as they have the larger stub axle. (It should be stamped on the strut tube).
A bracket needs to be made to mount the calipers (I used 8mm, grade 250 plate steel) as the strut mounting points are 90mm centre to centre and the calipers mounting points are 100mm centre to centre. As well as using high tensile (8.8) bolts.

It is not as simple as bolting it straight up. You need a shortened tail shaft made up, original crossmember mounts have to come out and modify the thrust bearing race. I opted to use a different clutch (4 puck ceramic button) other than the one supplied by dellow.
But at the end of the day i did the sums and the toyota box better suited my needs, In my opinion better constructed and easily maintained (being a split case type box).

15's easily, but some types of 14's (very very close). I myself run 15's

With a few additional mods to this successful combo, it is possible to mount 11 inch rotors and 4 spot alloy sumitomo calipers off a R32 skyline. (it works really well)

why dont you persue with the a series matched with the toyota sprinter 5 speed. there are two types to my knowledge, 2T & 3T. the later has a larger input shaft main bearing. the box is slim and is ideally suited to the tight transmission tunnel in the 1200's. Dellow eng in sydney makes a bellhousing to suit. I have found the gear ratios to be spot on.
