Thank you for your rebuilt caliper purchase. We hope you’re enjoying your shinny new brakes. A stock 914 brake system, in excellent operating order, is still to be revered. You’ve taken a giant leap forward by sorting through yours and bringing it back to factory standards. You’ll need the same tools used to remove the calipers to get them back on.
Here’s a list along with a diagram of this type caliper:
• 19mm open end or six-sided wrench for mounting bolts.
• 11mm brake line wrench for installing the brake line.
• Needle nose pliers for installing the hand-brake mounting clips and guide pin clips
Installing the caliper
1. Remove caliper from the box, gawk and ogle.
2. Install the brake pads (#1), spring (#14), guide pins (#24) and retaining clips (#25).
3. Mount the brake line (#6) to the caliper.
4. Remove the 5mm inner adjuster cover then install the caliper to the mounting ears using the 19mm mounting bolts (#2)
5. Adjust the venting clearance and then attach the hand-brake cable. Reinstall the inner adjuster cover.
***IMPORTANT ADJUSTMENT INFORMATION***
Normally the Inner adjustment gears are “not” included. You’ll need to take the adjuster gears out of your old calipers. (These have them in already) Your calipers are shipped with the pistons completely retracted. This will allow for new brake pads to slide in. When it comes time to adjust you “MUST” turn the adjustment screws in the proper direction or you risk damage to your new caliper. Inner adjustment screws turn “clockwise” to adjust the piston and pad toward the rotor. Outer adjustment screws turn “counterclockwise”. Adjust the pad clearance to .004mm with your parking brake “disconnected”.
