Much of the dans mc stuff is older so keep that in mind. Most of it works pretty well but there is a picture of spark plugs and what they should look like, it is from 77 and so does not apply much since gas composition has changed. he also has bible verses scattered around. Just so you know. I have no problem with it I want people to be aware as I welcome anyone here, not just Christians.
If you know of other sites, let me know, I will add them.
So this will be my first brake rebuild and it been successful so far but putting it together is still kinda weird. I took apart the front disc brake of my 1973 CB750 and I cant figure out if I am missing something. I got the piston in the caliper and put the small cap over it but the pad itself does not fasten to the piston. It does have a small screw on top but I feel like it does not have a function but to guide it throught the caliper. Does this pad just free float on the piston or is it somehow suppost to be fastened to the piston?
Dave Esch originally showed me this link, and i ended up buying it and installing on my bike, but it had lacked any sort of installation instruction. Although rather simple in design this thing was kind of a pain in the butt, and i had to make a few cuts to get it to fit my 750 headlight. I am rather bored at work today so i figured i would come up with a simple if not crude drawing to show how this thing went together.
(not an exact render)
my bike is a 82 cb750F, i don't know if the headlights are the same on these all, and i drew this from memory so the side screw may be on the opposite side; but hopefully this helps anyone who buys this and has a puzzled look on their face when they open it up.
Sorry about the late reply- I have taken a picture of the old one I removed to show the screw. When I removed the old one there was no clip in place and in the schematics of all the manuals I have there is no mention of any other parts. I have also checked on the websites to order brake parts and all the other pieces are shown.
Nope it is not what I was thinking of. Does your caliper have a slot of some type that the screw slides into? It would be a first for me hearing about a piston having a guide screw on it. What year and model is your 750? HMM try looking up replacement Pistons for your brake and see if it is on them. E Bay can be a good place to do research.
