Rear Brake Cam Lever alignment = slack pedal (Triumph T120 67')
Hi all. I recently stripped my rear wheel, including removing and refitting the lever that connects the rear brake linkage to the rear brake cam shaft. Upon reassembly I found that the travel in the brake pedal was extremely excessive, to the point it almost touched the ground, something clearly wasn't right. I am at a complete blank as to what the problem is, after all there isn't much to these things. I can only think it's something to do with the indexing of the rear brake cam lever to the cam spindle. There are only two positions that I can think that it could go, see both pictures, in one position there is no pre-tension in the spring, in the other the spring tension causes the cam to open up, this effectively results in the brake shoes retracting when the lever is operated rather than expanding. Both positions result in extreme brake pedal movement. Can anyone advise what the correct assembly method is for the lever please?
