  • Brakes

    We do need a brake class, it took me an hour to get the lower spring on the rear brake shoes, must be a trick, I still have the other side to look forward to. I struggled with the new cylinder retaining clip but with a lot of swearing it went on. Question: After installation how does one set the brake adjuster? This is a dumb question but it is not self adjusting after it set? The new cylinders that I got have a nipple next to the bleeder screw that stops the cylinder from twisting but I had to remove it because the holes in the backing plate are not in the same alignment. Hope this is not critical.

    Thanks all

    I too struggled with the new cylinder retaining clip but with Chucks help, and him really installing them it was a breeze. We also took out the drift pins out for the wheel cylinders so we didn't have to drill the backing plates.
