Wont guarantee you on this but try and take a look at cailiper pads from the SAAB 96 V4 say from 1970 - 1980
From memory (vagueley) the callipers look like they are the same swinging type.
Or search the web for pic's of SAAB's spring retainers.
Who knows, they might be the ones!

they are the same, only two cars to use these pads

the pads are easy to get hold of, but the spring retainers are not

sometimes you can buy lockhead pads that do have them (got a set today in the post!)

if your pad retainers are rusty its a nightmare as you need them to fit the pins to hold the pads in, you cannot bodge it, and they are handed, so you need a pair!

That's not my understanding, Lockheed parts book: ADO16 uses LDB731 whilst SAAB uses LDB733

The retainers may well be the same - I don't know

Not the caliper Rich, but the piston is common on the swinging caliper and so the rebuild kits are the same ;)

Rich (and others) it was a long shot from me and if any of the SAAB parts had been the same then it'd be to good to miss.
But seeems like nowt fitted :oops:
Maybe apart from this:

And they said the Mk2 was an improvement :lol: . At least with the Mk1 I can pillage any rotten old spridget for caliper and pads !. Might be less effective but at least you can get them.
