Default Re: Ausco cable disc brake install thread

The bakes were dragging a bit on this cart and I though it would get better but no luck there. So, I jacked it up and pulled a wheel. With a flashlight I could see there was a gap between the inner pad and the disc but not a gap between the outer pad and the disc.
This observation was made when the disc was held in tight against the hub as the wheel and lugs nuts will hold it.
Ausco says to remove the space washer between the hub and the bearing retainer ring if the outer pad is dragging.
I put a pair of washers on as shown on each side to space the pads outward. The result was a cart that rolled better than ever. Thought this might help somebody

Not quite sure if this has been covered, or not, but these pads are not "use 'till it gets down to the metal backing plate". They eventually wear thin enough that they can't be properly adjusted, and that point is before the "meat" of the brake lining is totally gone. Hope this will help someone, it has helped me with troublesome ones. And, yes, the washers sometimes have to be tried, and reconfigured at initial installation to get everything right. This was a fun one on a electric RXV axle. yes I welded brake mounting plates on a hotrod Rxv axle, getting the pedal group to play nice could be a project in itself (I'm sure glad the bellcrank mounting point is included on all frames!)
