    Help with Flux Setup

    New flux, can someone please explain how to adjust the brake pads on the El Camino brakes? The pads are rubbing on both rotors and I don't want to screw them up and render them unusable....please help! Thanks

    super easy!

    Loosen the two 5mm bolts holding the caliper to the mounting bracket just enough to let the caliper move. Apply the brake (squeeze the lever). This centers the caliper to the disc. Tighten the bolts while squeezing the lever. Let go of the brake, make sure the bolts are torqued and spin the wheel. You should be good to go.

    Thanks so much, it worked for the most part. On the front wheel it still rubs just a little bit, anything further that I can do to more finely tue it? Thanks again, big help, directions didn't come with them.

    Check your rotor to make sure it's true. You can fine-tune the caliper position by hand and eye as well (without applying the brakes).
