The BN6 as it rolled off the assembly line at Abingdon (and the few at Longbridge) had drum brakes as standard all round. Purchasers in the UK had the option of taking their car to Warwick for the Donald Healey Motor Company to fit disc brakes all round for the cost of £85. The disc brake conversion was also available for outright sale and shipping around the world.

Further to my previous response.

The BN6 with the 2.6litre engine had discs but still used ¾” rear cylinders. See Girling details attached.

So, I guess since I am putting 100-6 disc brakes on the front of my BN2 I won't have to do anything since both front and rear cylinders are 1" dia.?
