    New question here. Different disc brake mounts

    I am running a Manitou Black fork with a different style brake mount then a 05 Marzocchi AM SL I want to run. The Manitou has two holes that are drilled into the fork and the Marzocchi which I want to run has a bracket welded on.

    My current brake setup is a hydraulic Deore which I would like to keep for now. Is there an adapter I can purchase and if so what is it called?

    To make it a little more confusing I am running an adapter to house my 8inch rotor another piece I would like to keep.

    Can I also run an 8 inch rotor with the Marzocchi SL?

    Thanks

    Manitou Black = 74mm Post Mount
    Marzocchi 2005 AM SL= 51mm IS Mount

    Shimano 8"/203mm IS Brake Mount Adapter: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=13745

    Not sure if it's recommended to have a 8" disc on the Marzocchi fork, have a look in this manual it might tell you:

    Thanks cobba, unfortunately it does not mention anything about discs in there.

    Anyone out there use this fork with 8 inch rotors?

    Page 8 in the Manual:
    Disk brake mount: XC International Standard for 6" disk (fitting the special adapter supplied by the brake system manufacturer you can install the 8" disk).
    The 2005 Marzocchi Bomber Manual says the same thing on pages 33 & 38 about an 8" disc on the fork:
