Bear with me, I'm a disc brake n00b.
I bought these brakes off eBay:
They're Hope M4 #6 and the guy listed them as MTB front brakes. He included the rotor which measures 8in across. The lever seems to be a rear (right-hand) but the guy insists that they came directly off the front of his bike. (I didn't realize this until after I received the brakes.) If they were mounted for the fronts (left-hand), the master cylinder would be upside down. Can they be mounted this way?
If so, then why doesn't it fit on my '05 Fox F80X?
Do I need an adapter bracket? If I mount the caliper on the inner face of the fork's caliper mounts, the caliper hits the spokes. If I mount it on the outer face, well it's just way off. What am I doing wrong?
Was I scammed and sold different parts? Can the rear(?) lever even be used on the front? Are these even MTB brakes?
I tried Googling for pics but couldn't find very many...
