Default Front Brake Shaft -

How do you determine if the cup in the front brake shaft is too worn to work properly? Is there a certain depth to the cup in the shaft? How far in into the cup should the operating pin fit? Thanks.

Bob

Bob I would buy new correct length rods and make sure you get 15 degree forward slant with the levers. If you can’t obtain the 15 degrees you could install the little brake pills or replace the brake shafts
