300ZX Rear E-Brake Assembly on S13 (Anchor bolt washer)

Can someone please tell me the size of the washer I need to use to replicate the thickness of the tab on the 300zx hub?



In two videos on youtube I saw someone mention that the washer needs to be 7/16" but I've also seen on the forum that people said two 3mm washers will work as well. Can someone confirm what size washer I need to use?

I believe the brake shoes on the e-brake assembly rubs on the inside of the rotor (the area in red in the photo below) if you dont have the correct sized washer?

I used 2 washers from caliper bolts. I had to drill them to fit the big bolt. I then just got the 92 non turbo wheel bearings from rockauto that come with that mount you picture

Do I have to get the non turbo bearings or can it still work without them on my 5 lug s14 hubs?

Yeah you can, you just need the washers. The 2 caliper washers drilled out will be the Same thickness.

Two front or rear caliper washers? I might just grab washers from the hardware store and drill those out. That should work as well right?

Either one, they are the same thickness. If you want to get some from the hardware store then I would take 2 caliper washers with you so you can match the thickness

Got it. Is it the front or rear caliper washers? I'm looking at the front and rears online and they aren't the same thickness so I want to make sure I grab the right washer so I can match the thickness.

Also do you have a picture of which caliper washer you're talking about? I'm trying to think of the washers on the calipers but can only think of the ones that are used with the bolt that holds the 2 calipers halves together
