Re: front disk
Over time I have notice the rotor become looser and looser. I have compensated by adding extra wave washers. But it's worn too much now. The rotor is moving around so much it is reshaping the roll pins (#4) and also the hole in the rotor. I don't have it apart right now to take a picture but I don't remember the rim having any problems.
I just looked again and it's the rotor and roll pins, not the rim that is the problem. Having come from the aircraft world, it looks to me like we should write a bulletin that tells people to replace the roll pins every 50,000 miles to avoid this.
I guess I will replace the roll pins and hope it's enough without having to replace the rotor too.
Any better ideas??
