DISASSEMBLING FRONT BRAKE (Fig. 2G-2) Remove wheel with brake drum from fork as described in 2C. Spring brake shoes out and away from side cover (23) at top to free shoes (2 and 4) and springs (1 and 3) from pivot stud (8) and cam lever (18).

Remove cotter pin (16), cam lever washer (17) from cam lever stud (20). Disconnect cable ferrule from anchor pin in hand lever by loosening clamp nut (10) and depressing brake hand lever. Slip cam lever assembly off stud. Make complete disassembly in order shown.


If linings are worn down to rivet heads, impregnated with grease as a result of over-greasing wheel hubs, cracked or ridged badly, they must be replaced. When relining a shoe, start at one end and work to the other to make linings bear tightly against shoe.

If a riveting machine is not available, set rivets with hand tools and bevel lining ends.
