Just bought a Heckler frame and stuck a set of Hayes HFX Comps 6" on it - (first time with Hydraulics.)
Attached rear brake, set pads away from rotor fine but the wheel hardly turns......seems that the rotor is scraping the top of the caliper body between the pads - almost like the caliper is sitting too far down ontop of the rotor. This is not an adjustment that can be made without washers, but is this a common adjustment to have to make? If I stuck a couple of real thin washers between the caliper and the mounting adaptor it would raise the caliper up and hopefully stop the rubbing - is this normal/safe?
Thanks for any pointers.
PS: The pic shows where the rotor contacts the caliper:
