UPDATE
Ok so i figured out why the pads wont stay, its because the rotor isnt sliding back far enough on the hub. I though this would be a simple fix.
I took the rotor off, put onlt the seal on the back of the rotor and the bearings in the rear of the rotor on and slid it back on the hub..... still sticks out about an inch too far.
next i put the seal on the rotor but no bearings (for testing only) and it slides back pleny
last i just put the bearings in and no seal. Lo and behold, it is still 3/4 an inch to an inch off, but i know for a fact the bearings are seated as far back on the spindle as possible, so i dont get it. Anyone help? TIA



so i've almost got my truck back together, but after mounting the caliper to the rotor, the front/outside pad stays put just fine, but the rear/back pad is loose, all sloppy, i even had someone apply pressure while i held the pad in place, thinking it just needed some tension, but once the brakes were off, it was loose again. Any pointers? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

it should have little tin / metal clips for the pads, im not sure if your had the ones that go sideways across or clip on at the ends beetween the tiny ears tho... shouldn't be that hard to find.

on bottom of that pad there is a retainer clip holding it in there. The clip comes in a brake hardware kit from napa. The kit is only like $6 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Are you sure the bearing is sliding all the way on unrestricted? Try taking both the inner and outer bearings out of the hub and sliding them on by themselves to see if they are binding at all, they should slide almost all the way to the end of the spindle.

Hmmm, maybe take some light emory cloth and smooth out the surface where the bearing rides. There may be some little metal pieces causing the bearings to bind as you slide them on. Also how are you tightening the bearing preload nut down? I hope your using a socket and wrench.

You know, the big round thing that hold the bearings in. You have to take it out to get the roter/hub assembly off.

no i looked in a book (haynes?) and it didnt show the clip anywhere. I found out how its held in, i just need to get the rotor to mount up correctly
and as far as the bearing, yeah i've tried it about 10 ways, one including bearing mounted in the rotor before i slid it on

i dont care what the book says, it needs a clip for some sort of resistance oe itll just flop around, books dont show everything, hell, mine leaves out the fact that masters require bench bleeding /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif or that there is even a sequence /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
