A band brake would have been easier to mount, and you could make a nice cover to hide it.



S'all for now!

I just have to weld a mounting bracket on the frame tomorrow.

Thank you Fabrice!!!!! Where were you last week!!!!!! That would have saved me
a whole bunch of time had I seen your setup. Very clean a simple. Now I might
just have to re-think what I've got.
It appears that you added 'e' clips and return springs to the floating puck pins.
I haven't split the casting but it looks like the two pins are free to float so they
can be grooved for the 'e' clips?
Thanks very much for posting those pictures.

Here is what I came up with, not as clean as your design. Very well done, but
I expect nothing less from you.
I'm waiting for delivery of some dowel pins so i used a couple of bolts temporarily
to check the float. The bracket with the pins gets bolted to a steel tab welded
to the bottom of the frame.

Hi Denny,

Your concept is very clean too!
In fact, I think it's not necessary to design more complicated for just a parking brake .... winking smiley
I thought I would use these calipers for the road brake, but it was a mistake! far too weak ....
Good luck for the future !

Fabrice

PS : Sorry, I do not come here very often because the translation of all the post and quite tedious for my !
And if only we spoke the same language ..... Maybe less problem on this planet !! perhaps.........

Oui, much less misunderstanding if we all spoke a common language.
I appreciate the effort you make in translation, Je vous remercie.
I plan on using it as a hand brake occasionally also.

Done!!!!
Well, it's finished and works nice and smooth. Tain't as elegant as Fabrice's set up
of the same caliper, but.....I'm located outside the frame and have now crossmember
to span. I could trim a bit of fat from the mount but that would only save me a
few ounces if that much so....it's not worth the effort.
Oh yeah.....the frame is up side down in the pics, the caliper is bottom right on
the kart.

Now, for the hand brake lever itself and it's ratchet! That orta take up the rest
of the week the way things are going!

Also I made note; that Speedway carries a mechanical brake caliper for $101.99......
ya look at it next to an Airhart for fifty bucks and it is identical right down to
the last detail. Talk about a rip off!

Hi,

Some of us use this caliper, it works with two cables! one for the road and the other for the parking ....
A simple and inexpensive idea !

Well that's one I had not seen Fabrice and can not find it on the internet this morning.
I would like to know the name of the caliper for my reference file.
Thought this thread was dead...but it still seems to have a little life left in it.
merci beaucoup,
Denny G
