Type 3  calipers have 42 mm pistons and each piston will have that little 
bump in  
the center, facing the pad. There are 2 versions, early and late. Late  
take larger pads and have larger attaching bolts which are spaced  farther 
A quick way to determine early and late calipers is to measure the caliper  
attaching bolt spacing. For early calipers it's 2 3/4 inches between the 
centers  of the bolt heads. For late calipers it's 3 inches.
I hope this helps.
