The Inlet hose doesn't have to be on the bottom. but the bleeder absolutely does have to be on top. With the parking brake lever on top, the caliper is upside down. They have to be flipped from side to side to correct the issue.That was my point. The inlet always goes on the bottom and the bleeder on top. That way they fill from the bottom and the air will come out the to
That’s what I thought so now the ebrake levers are one the bottom and the hoses on top but what’s odd is the bleeders are in the middle of the calipers so no matter how I mount the calipers they always seem to be in the middle the company I bought them from is LEEDS brakes and they are made for my XJ, when I swapped sides with them I noticed the calipers are marked L and R but that again puts the ebrake mechanisms on top and not the bottom where they belongThe Inlet hose doesn't have to be on the bottom. but the bleeder absolutely does have to be on top. With the parking brake lever on top, the caliper is upside down. They have to be flipped from side to side to correct the issue.
I double checked the bleeders and they weren’t in the middle infact they were at the bottom at least on mine so I put ‘‘em back where they belong which has now put the ebrakes back on top and the hoses on bottom and now I was able to bleed ‘em successfully, unfortunately the master cylinder I bought is now leaking at the booster so I’m gonna let the garage finish it but the brake light is off and I’ve got brakes……yahhhhh!!!!!!!!!
Those are the ones I’ve got for sure
Yes I had to pump the ebrake levers to close the pads around the rotorsDid you adjust the parking brake on both calipers. you have to apply and release, apply and release, keep repeating this until the play in the caliper has been adjusted out. The caliper piston has an internal screw that the park brake rotates to keep the brakes adjusted. when you replace worn out pads, you have to manually reset this screw.
That is the million dollar question, I have adjusted them twice and I believe they are within the range of acceptable. My thing is when I pull up on the lever it gets nice and solid like I would want it and it holds awesome when trying to roll backwards. But it won't hold my jeep from rolling forwards.are the rear brakes properly adjusted?
