K H caliper question
05/22/12 at 01:06:50
 
72 or 73 K H caliper on a Javelin . Got new calipers . They have the typical anti rattle spring clips that go under the bolt heads . But there is also a wire some sort of anti rattle thing that came in the box . The last time I touched a K H brake set up on an AMC was like 1979 . I cant figure out how this piece goes on . Is there any one out there with a stock K H set up that has a anti rattle spring wire , that goes on the outer pad maybe ??.Or it could just be wrong part thrown in the box at the reman place maybe ..77.

Hope this gets to you in time! There is a wire anti-rattle springs. It goes around the outside (non-piston side) and clips over the ends of the pad. The ends of the spring go around the guide pins, sort of hang on the guide pins (ends of spring "up" over pins). Looks like you'd have to put the springs on before the guide pins go in.

Do you have a pic thats easy to put up or email to me ??. so the spring is horizontal on out side of caliper . then the two ends go up and around behind the pad , then the pin goes thru end . This is for freind of mine putting a disc brake conversion onto a  61 Ford econoline truck and the conversion kit uses k h calipers and brackets . Thanks ..77.
