Curiously the letter from Geoff Price of the DHMC was to Bob Cutler in
Sydney, Australia.


Bob is a friend of mine and is still very much with us. He was racing a BN1
in 1960 that was (and still is) a very quick motor car. BMC Australia at the
time was providing some support and each time it won a race, the publicity
would say that Bob Cutler was driving a 3-litre Austin-Healey as the current
AH of the time was the 3000.

The attached copy of the letter form DHM sheds some light on the disc brake


The brakes were the same as on the later Jaguar xk150, as far as know (i.e.
with the later type of cylinder piston assemblies that were used up to
Jaguar e-type Series 1.

The handbrake as of the non adjustable type, again, same as on later xk150.



Basing on this letter, I have actually installed such brakes in my BN2,
pretending this is a correct option for BN2. However, I know it would not
stand Concourse scrutiny. :-).
