Don't rally design stock Wilwood service kits? I would assume that the seal kits are based on piston size rather that calipers type so a modern rebuild kit for the a calipers with the same size piston may work.

Those look like raceleda/bremsport/outlaw m16 calipers, i don't think wilwood made any lug mount m16 replacements.
Afaik there is no difference between the 3 brands so the service kits should be cross compatible.
Have a look here, they might list uk dealers and service kits.

thanks i have just open calipers and clean all parts like in the pdf you have linked.. the problem for me is find the right dimension of seals.
i have asked to many brake shops here but with this size they haven't.

i can ask to rallydesign too... yes i think it's important only the piston size for reference

thankyou dave! i have read on forum about raceleda/bremsport/outlaw m16 calipers but I thought they were out of production.
i'll write immediatly a mail to outlaw.
my consideration about wilwoo is related to type of pads that exatly match the dynalite one.

Have you tried contacting Westfield? they ought to know who supplied them with the calipers.

I was thinking they looked more like hi-spec as well.
