Put the pad on and tighten the set screws, maybe even hold the pins together as you tighten the set screwsOK so I was trying to put on my tr 1piece brake mount and ran into an issue... The posts that the brake pads slide on seems to require me to drill out the pad's holes. Is this common? Or have I bent the posts/rods?
My issue doesn't seem to be the "PAD HOLES". Everything went together fine. The pins were a lil tight but my issue is final assembly. When all the screws are being installed from the top 1pc and TR top plate, apparently it tightens everything down and something is binding the brakes from rotating. when I back out the screws from the 1pc brake kit, everything rotates fine...Or maybe when tightened down its pushing on the pads then forcing the brakes bind...IDK! :huh2:Mine are ok but as said above just drill out the pads holes
well amigo there are a couple of things to check.do u guys actually thing its because how tight the pads are on the pics? IDK because with out the hardware bolts down, all moves freely and I am able to initiate the brakes by hand pulling on the linkage and all seems to work fine...BUT! when I tighten the 2 button head screws on the TR 1pc kit or even the flat screws on the TR rear diff plate and brake kit...it all locks up hard! ...ANYONE???
I bought the T used and working perfect! Until now in my transformation full build! I guess I will remove it all today and assemble it off the T and see what is binding it if mo one here has experienced this same issue.
+1 my money's on the plastic ring on the brake hex,happened to us twice,trimmed it down a bit and all was goodI bet it is the plastic piece that goes on the disk brake Hub; It prevents the Disc Brake Rotor from falling out of the disk brake hub. The diameter of the stock HPI plastic piece is too big which rubs the bottom of the transmission lower plate causing the bind.

I know exactly what pc u are talking about! I was even looking at that pc to as a possibility. Now I know it is possible. Thanks!+1 my money's on the plastic ring on the brake hex,happened to us twice,trimmed it down a bit and all was good
+1 on that! Something I have recently learned.You guys having fitment and install issues need to remember a few things.. You are replacing stock plastic parts & thinner aluminum parts with new billet parts. The clearances are going to change and the flex wont be there.. You need to loosen all of your aluminum and billet parts up when installing other or new billet parts to get things to install easier..
Just an FYI if you haven't figured that out by now, I've learned that over the years after fighting parts for hours
