    Austin America advice

    Guys, help.... I just bought a Austin America project. I am hoping that there are a few BCF members that have experience with these cars.

    I am having problems understanding how to install the tapered brake pads in the calipers. I must be missing something. Is there a special technique? I havenít seen a set up like this before.

    i would really appreciate any suggestions or advice.

    thank you.
    Thanks,

    Bill

    You might want to contact the owner of the site, and ask join the BMC1100 forum:
