TR2/3/3A Rear wheel cylinders for 54 TR-2


Jedi Warrior

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?

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.
