    Does anybody know if any brake caliper substitutes are available for SV front brakes. The early 1970's Capri calipers are no longer available. I remember reading somewhere that the TR3 or TR4 calipers are identical to the SV units. Can anybody confirm that? Thanks

    John, Advance Auto Parts list the calipers for a 1974 Capri as availble for home delivery.

    I believe advance is where I got mine too. They function well, no problems

    Numerous sources claim to have them but once ordered the "unavailable" e-mails start to arrive. I've tried 7-8 places. That's why I'm now looking for a non-Capri substitute.

    TR3 and early TR4 should work.

    Have had TR3 calipers on my car since 2006. No problems. Exchanged my originals with TR 3's through Apple Hydraulics.
