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?
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).
