Free Brake Parts


A garage sort out has revealed a few brand new genuine brake parts (cylinders and springs) suitable
for an early model 1977 Daihatsu Jeep. Some part numbers are just visible on the faded packaging. I also have a new cork sump gasket for the Daihatsu/Toyota petrol 1600cc engine that was fitted to the jeeps at that time. The vehicle model was an ‘F’ series I think, like the Taft but the sidelight/indicator lens was rectangular rather than square. I have a photo of the vehicle if needed for identification purposes. It was a personal import, reregistered as ANP519R and sold as long ago as 1987... if the owner is reading this I would be delighted to hear from you!

As I don’t like throwing away new parts, I am hopeful that someone reading this might want them before being sent to auto part heaven! Available FREE of charge, collect from Swindon, Wiltshire, or I can send them for the cost of the postage. Full listing available on request, as accurately as I can.

Yes please

I'll have the sump gasket please. Could you send me your address in a private message and a list of other stuff and I'll send you whatever you think the postage will be. You don't get a better offer than free!!

Sump gasket and brake parts

Spare Parts for 1977 Daihatsu Jeep (1600cc petrol engine):

Cork sump gasket 12151-30010-000 (measures 260mm x 515mm overall)
Brake spring 90045-06061-000 177mm long
Two brake springs 9004?-?6058-000 180mm long
Unboxed brake cylinder with toothed adjuster, no part number but cast AISIN L1 2R
Unboxed brake cylinder without adjuster, no part number but cast AISIN 7/8 64
(Both brake cylinders are new but have got light surface corrosion during storage)
4 little bolts
Brake spacer? I can’t identify what this piece is or what it does.
Complete yellow indicator light as mounted on the side of the vehicle
Yellow indicator lens ditto
Metal surround to front indicator/side light combination.

I think I have also got a pair of circular headlights somewhere, but they cannot be used in this country. They caused the vehicle to fail the MOT because they are right dipping.

The Jeep was bought in Dubai in 1983, and driven back home in April 1986, towing a trailer through Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and France. I made and fitted an extra stainless steel fuel tank to more than double the range to over 500 miles between petrol stops. The journey took 16 days during which several breakdowns occurred, all electrical. A friend drove with me in a Subaru, which I still use today. After re-registration in the UK my brother used the jeep for forestry work for one year and caused a lot of damage. It was then sold to a buyer from Stourbridge, West Midlands.

I had a lot fun with the Jeep, ideal for off-road vehicle driving in sand and in the mountains of the Emirates!

Dear Alastair,

I don't know whether you got my message yesterday giving my contact details. This forum is different to the others I subscribe to and rather counter-intuitive!

Email me on eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%72%65%65%76%65%73%6a%63%40%68%61%6c%63%72%6f%77%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%73%72%65%65%76%65%73%6a%63%40%68%61%6c%63%72%6f%77%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))

I have also attempted to list out the parts in detail.
