Hi,

I have photos of the brake pads from Kimberlite. How do I include photos in this text?

I know I can’t add them as an attachment.

Yes..."contacts the piston pin"

Its a standard hex head bolt

 

Maud does have pads, it was only that none of the ones she has look like ours...apparently there are three different types

Whoa. Interesting solution. Just to be clear (before I start drilling holes) when you said "where it contracts the piston pin"......you meant "contacts the piston pin", right ? What kind of head do you have on the M8 bolt ? Does it matter ?

 

I'm going to verify that Maud doesn't have the pads.......kind of surprising given that everyone will need to change the pads at some point.......but if they aren't easily obtained, I will follow your lead.

 

Thanks for the idea........this is exactly why I love this site.
