    Caliper Bolts please please help..

    Hi all , getting frustrated now trying to get replacement bolts to fit new calipers to my AK , based on a 75 XJ6 ( i assumed Series 2 )

    i was looking at the SC Spares catalogue, and had a long chat with their help desk but all the sizes they had did not reflect what i had previously fitted.
    I have been browsing the net ( there are no local spares places around here ) for days and everything seems to be different or badly detailed on the site.

    Does anyone know , what bolts and washers i should have and where can i find them please ?

    The Rears i have are total length ( including head ) 48mm have a non threaded part of the shank and fit a 5/8ths Spanner ( each has a spring washer )



    The Fronts are total lenght 48mm one has a non threaded part of the shank and the other is fully threaded and they fit a 3/4ths Spanner ( fully threaded bolts have a spring washer )


    Additionally i need to replace the front brake pipe unions which total length 24.5mm length and fit a 9.16ths Spanner each has a copper washer


    Any help is appreciated. i am getting to the end of my tether with this now

    Thanks
    Dean

    I also got Jag parts from SNG Barrat Group, David Manners and Jaguar Classic parts.
    The latter have exploded illustrations and part numbers which can be helpful.
    I found getting the part number was half the battle...
    They may be worth a call..

    As "incey" said Jaguar classic parts have diagrams https://www.jaguarclassicparts.com/u...d-caliper-rear

    I'm not too clever on XJ6, as mine are XJS but their web site is easy to navigate and has part numbers and an add to basket if in stock and you can double check against SNG. Excellent service from SNG so far and usually 24hr delivery via Royal Mail!

    Maybe it’s me but I’ve IVA two Cobras now and neither had wired bolts on the calipers, just spring washers.
