Hi ! I have a 8.2 on my Nova 70 today. i rebuildt the brakes on that 8.2 axle this winter, Then i stumbled over a 12 bolt diff Nova axle. that i bought right on the spot. i´m planing to swap the axles soon.
But the brakes on the 12 Bolt axle needs new parts and pads ond so on..
Can i use all the brake parts from the 8,2 ? Or do i have to buy new brakes and all small parts again ?
Many thanks Anders

Welcome to the site, the 10 and 12 bolts used the same brakes and backing plates, you're good to use them on the 12 bolt.:yes:
