5KCSTQ brake pads?


	I have always thought that the '86 5KCSTQ had a running change in 
Jan '86 when they went to a different brake pad.  I assumed that the dual 
piston calipers (that's G60 to you Bob:-) used the same pads as the post 
Jan '86 brakes.

	Here's what I _KNOW_ for sure now.  It's only a little more than 
before, but its progress :-)

	My '86 (Jan '86 build date) has dual piston calipers, and takes a 
large pad (145mm top to bottom).  My neighbour's blue '86 has the single 
piston calipers, and takes the smaller pads (110mm from top to bottom, 
not including a retaining tab).  Would someone care to measure a pad from 
an '89-on 100/200?  I am betting that they are 145mm.  

	Is there a third pad, or does the '89-on merely have the dual 
piston calipers that are occasionaly found on earlier 5KCSTQs?

	Thanks very much.
