I'm betting the fiche is right, because those calipers were
originally spec'd
for the '80-'83 5000T(maybe your 200). The application listing
on the 5000T
lists the part numbers "correctly" oriented ie: 424 being a RR
caliper. I
can't recall being under an '80 5000t recently, but perchance
might the
mounting positions be reversed on the rotor compared to the
ur-q app? Hence
the same P/N for the calipers, but reversed numbering due to
the mounting
position. Any antique 5000T owners care to comment :)

I think Chris is right. I was just thumbing through my
Introductory Service Info and they mention that the rear
calipers on the UrQ were taken from the early 5000T and
turned around, requiring a funky parking brake cam.
