haha J hook backwards or is that an acceptable way I don't know of?

grooves, J hooks etc are old skool now anyway, this is the way to go:

I think they are right.... arent they.

We run ours (grooves) against the pad, rather than with.

So / rather than \

Outer edge hitting first if you like.

They look to do the same, but just a different pattern of smaller grooves (J)

I'm likeing the ducting for the IC/Rad too. A bit more pro looking than Fees Laughing

Mine doesnt even have any!

Just had a quick google... and this is the correct way for AP Jhooks


sticking a pencil in the internal vanes is a good way of telling!

I think they are right.

I had same with AP discs with grooves, they go the opposite way to how you would naturally think they go, the top of the groove sweeps the pad first. Pretty sure that's how AP tell you to mount J-Hooks.

I googled - AP instruct J hooks to go with (or use the internal vanes to get it right)... so the pic above looks wrong if they are AP

the J should face the way its written surely otherwsie its a C hook, no?

in the pic the cooling veins are facing forwards too I think

i thought the vein should face backwards so the air is thrown backwards as it travels up from the hub to the outer rim

what do i know i can remember the last time i even looked at a car Crying or Very sad

It depends if internal vanes are curved or straight though, this is where I went wrong. It's the vanes that dictate direction not the disc finish.

I'm trying to recall what was said at the time but I think it was that if you put a pencil in the vanes on the disc, curved would point backwards and straight slightly forward iirc.

Yes thats what I was told.
Wheel off & it you stick pencils it they should slope backwards like fan blades or straight & the J's looking like J's Smile
