If that rotor is 256mm its LC-J

If its 270mm its KTG

 

As for the arms... LC-J is my guess... def not KTG

HQ are vented discs for a start. I didn’t think the HKTG calipers have the girlock script casting. Control arm looks to be LC LJ. But I thought the Torana rotors have slot holes. Other than that the disc to hub offset looks Torana, but could be HR. I’d be having a go at checking the king pin inclination in case someone has swapped HR stubs and discs way back when.

Thanks gents. 

Yes, dumb question, HQ are slotted....doh.

Just to close the loop ..the Torana discs don't have "slot holes" that I am aware of.  Their discs look like little saucers, almost look too small to be true.

 

Thanks again

The Morris 997 and 998 Cooper's had 7in Disc Rotors. The 1275 Cooper S's had 7.5in Disc Rotors. 

 

I did a Honda Civic conversion on mine and now have massive 9.1in Disc Rotors.

These are the discs with the slots I was referring to. Anyone identify these? They are fitted to a modified HR front end and believed to be from a Torana.945d8b4335d57a6b76e2b43ee0afaa23.jpg

Clay check the nut that holds the rotor on , small nut will be HR stub and large nut will be LC/UC stub .

 

most likely be that they are LC/UC stubs with that rotor

Thanks Troy,
The photo was picked from Gumtree. The rotor is definitely not HD HR. I regularly see this style of rotor fitted to HR balljoint front ends and I’m curious as to what car they originate from. I do believe they can be bolted up with matching calipers to HR stubs, with resultant track increase. The difference in king pin inclination between Torana and Holden means that correct camber can’t be set when Torana assemblies are fitted to Holden HD to WB balljoint front ends.

Handy to know about the castellated nut size in differentiating stub axles.
Cheers
Clay
