I engineered this setup from off the shelf calipers and rotors with working emergency brake. Designed custom mounting plates, they are bolt on but can be welded. Will weld on after testing period.

Working with a supplier who will make laser cut brackets, you can order direct from them. Installation document will be done soon. Hang in there!

Awesome stuff! Please advise on caliper and disk used. Been looking at this modification for quite some time but looks like you found a disk rotor with 4 x 4.00" bolt circle and a usable offset, bravo. Counter sink the lug holes and use conical seat lug nuts to center disk and then I'd drill in four counter sinks and tapped holes in the flange to assure it stays on center or perhaps design up a light press-fit bushing to center it on the axle shaft boss.

I finished may assembly guide what use and did, also received a quote from a laser cut source. Only leaves me with getting samples of their parts to make sure they fit. The rotors are on 100mm bolt circle, however their clearance hole is large enough for exact fit to outside edges of lug studs to center rotor on hub plate. I test drove a lot and everything performs well. The pedal pressure is stiffer. I also included a rear proportion valve,

Great work!

I have been looking into possible brake upgrade solutions also and have some prototypes for front and rear brakes using Honda/Acura calipers with various rotors. I also came up with a prototype for some Wilwood calipers. My problem had been lack of time to move from prototype to production.

I have some pictures at:

I created a brake upgrade pdf here:

Maybe this can help other people looking into how to upgrade your Jensen Healey brakes.

If people are interested I can post more details about the caliper adapter brackets.

HiSpec Motorsports in England has posted a new single piston rear caliper with an electric e-brake which they say will be available summer 2017. At 770 GBP for calipers, ECU and wiring cables; its a bit pricey but this would definitely cut out a lot of headaches engineering and fabricating e-brake linkage/cable.
