Lightbulb Brake disc (rotor) help

I will be replacing my Cleveland brakes on my RV9a. I got grove parts, used from another project, I went thru replaced all the O rings but it didnít have the discs. I need both. The one I currently have is not 1/4Ē (.25). I am not finding the rotors that I need. Does anyone know the part number? For rappco or any other brand? Thanks

At the moment I have the same as you.
But the grove brake takes a thicker .25 disc and thatís the part number or brand recommendation I am digging for.

Thanks for posting Rico. Iím running Cleveland brakes and wheels on my RV-8, but have a new set of Grove brake calipers Iíd like to use. So when you find the right Grove disk that fits the Cleveland wheel let me know.

I am sure someone here will help us out. We are not the only ones with grove brakes.

I am still in search of knowledge if someone has a grove brake system on a Parker/Cleveland wheel.
Grove doesnít make any rotos to go on that wheel. Rappco also claims that they donít either.
Just hoping someone has done that.
