Hi all,

Anyone know where I can source a replacement seal for a Taffspeed hydraulic front hub (90s)?

I really struggled to find a replacement for the obsolete French car seal for my MSC disc but I believe that the Taff one may originate from a period Mini. Anyone got a decent lead for a replacement?

Thanks in advance.

Adam

Yes mini seals, four pot caliper. search my posts and a response from Ian - terrible taff - for his confirmation.

If you can wait till I'm back on Wednesday night I'll have a look in the shed as I'm sure I have spares.

Last time i was in this predicament i went to a local motorbike engineers - they measured it and found one from the hi level catalogue. Not sure who made the hydraulic conversion and what the seal was.

Rosscla, if you have a spare available then that would be great but even the info of the specific seal would help to to source them.

Thanks again.

Adam, the more common one is a Metro seal. (Several early ones were Mini). S
