Hi. I did a major rebuild of everything on my brakes a couple of years ago including fitting one of the Spanish replacement servos. Only thing untouched was master cylinder which was good before and after all the other work. Memory not good but all threads (cap screws, nipples and other nuts and bolts) on the caliper assemblies are imperial. Master cylinder and servo original) are metric. The first copper pipe from the flexibles to the calliper blocks are metric at input (hose) and imperial into the caliper, I bough several of each type of nipple and made sure I had a new nut in each hole to be sure. If you make new little copper pipes for the connections around the calliper don't do what I did, I though I'd made decent copies but not so, they rubbed on the inside of the wheel rims, they have to be very snug around the unis.
Hope that helps and let me know if you need anything else. Cheers. Dale
