I fit new, not rebuilt, TR7/Spitfire Girling 16s procured from Rock Auto to 10628.  Other than a different mounting bolt (the caliper mounting hole is slightly larger), and adapting to metric pipe at the caliper, it was a bolt-in.  The piston is definitley larger than that of the 14s, which opens up options for increasing braking force if one works with the rest of the system (MC and booster), but as others have said pads and braided lines are probably the most important change one can make.  That, and rear brakes.

Edit: TR7/Spitfire are Girling 16, originally typed 14.
