16P Calipers


Freshman Member

I have Girling 16P calipers on the front of my ‘71 Vixen 2500.

It was built in April 1971, so I would assume the brakes match up to a 1970 TR6?

The calipers have the following on them:

16P 645

I think they would match the early TR6 calipers from Moss Motors, but just want to make sure.

There is a 16p and a 16pb
Pbs are metric and have a different dust seal. If yours have the V shaped seals then they are 16p.
They look like P to me. Moss will have all the bits you require along with SS pistons. Use a lot of Girling grease when fitting the cups.
