Slight wobble in brake hub

Post by rustedtruckranch » Mon Apr 25, 2016 8:27 pm

I'm currently assembling the break hub and caliper (page 44) and noticing that my hub has a slight wobble to it. I've opened up the caliper as much as possible, but it's still dragging at a specific point in the axle rotation.

Any thoughts?

Loving the kit. It's a family project, and my 4 kids (ages 7 - 14) are helping me with all aspects.

thanks,

Kyle

Hi Kyle,
Apologies for the slow response. First thing to do is check and make sure the disc is mounted to the bare metal side of the hub. One side has been post machined to be straight, the side with the paint is not.
Hope this helps, and great to hear that you and your family are enjoying the kit!
