    Rear wheel cylinders for 54 TR-2

    I just got the new rear cylinders for my 54 TR 2. They do not look like the old ones. There is no adjusting wheel to adjust through the hole in the drum. In addition, there is only one outlet for the brake line. How are you supposed to bleed these cylinders?

    I'm guessing you were already missing some bits, such as #12-15 and #20-21 in this diagram on the Moss Motors page? (I'm assuming you have the original rear end with Lockheed brakes.) https://mossmotors.com/triumph-tr2-3-4/brakes/rear-brakes-3

    The only part I couldn't find was 12. I ordered two used ones from Revington and the rest from Moss.

    12 is how you bleed the cylinder, so you will need 2 of those. The adjusters are also separate from the cylinders. On the TR2 they are not wheels, but rather parabolic ratchets, and they are part of an assembly to adjust the brakes. I will look for pics.
