    Hi

    I have a 1987 Fiat Tabbert Europa 560. I need to change the rear brake cylinders and need advice about which one, as there appear to be two.

    I haven't called Fiat yet- just seeing whether I can get advice here first.

    Thanks alot.

    Possibly two seperate production runs at the same time and could be either.

    Only sure way to know is strip the brake and get the part number off the cylinder....or remove it and take it with you to the supplier.

    if my memory serves me well when looking for rear wheel cylinders for my 1989 auto sleeper talisman years ago the two types were girling or lockhead i think different shaped wheel cylinders

    I've just fitted new rear cylinders to my fiat based Hymer and that had 3 different size cylinders which related to the weight the van can carry, mine were the largest, now for new discs and front wheel bearings :(

    Thanks for the replies. I assume the rating will be for the largest.
    The cylinders on ebay are rated 900-1600 payload but there is a bigger one 1800. I think it must be this one.
    I left the MH in Greece so not easily looked at and it was German import. Thanks anyway. I will call Fiat tomorrow.
