Title: Scootacar wheel cylinders
Post by: Si Bally on June 28, 2017, 06:40:59 PM
Hi all
I have changed the wheels cylinders on my Scootacar Mk1 and frustratingly the back faces of the three wheel studs are rubbing on the newly fitted cylinder. I noticed that the cylinder I removed has witness marks where the hub studs were also rubbing. Is this a problem with the Scootacar front brakes? I have fitted Morris Minor rear cylinders with the handbrake lever cut off. I assume one remedy would be to fit spacers/washers between the hub assembly and the backplate?

Any help would be great.

Many thanks

Simon Balistrari

I have had to angle grind a little bit of the cylinder away to cure this, sounds drastic but mine were only rubbing a little. It seems the modern ones are slightly larger  :(
