Figure 1250.Single disc brake-repair and parts replacement diagram.
Spare grips are shipped with pilot pins installed to
open the grip to the approximate diameter of the
adjusting pin, thus preventing damage to the grjp during
installation. The pilot pin is expelled as the grip is forced
over the adjusting pin. If grips are to be reused when a
brake is disassembled, they should have the pilot pins
reinstalled before assembly in the brake.
Brake repairs on the single disc brake consist of
replacing linings, worn or damaged sealing devices,
brake release units, or brake discs. See figure 12-50.
Lining replacement and cure-date kit installation
consist of the following steps:
1. Remove the lockwire and unscrew the cylinder
heads (brake release units); remove the release units
from the housing.
2. Remove the disc from the brake housing.
3. Remove the inlet plug and bushing, the bleeder
adapter, and O-ring packings.
