M38/M47 Series

  • Dynamic torque (inch/lb) 2.69 x Lever Force (lb.) x braking radius

Cam Lever Travel Data:

  • 15º maximum lever travel when friction pads are new and with 1/32" gap on each side of disc.
  • Periodic tightening of lock nut will reduce travel of lever and will allow 1/4" wear on each friction pad.
  • 90º maximum lever travel after 3/16" wear on each friction pad and without intermediate tightening of lock nut.
  • Power Factor: M38F and M47F Series 1X, 200 Series 3.5X

M200 Series

  • Dynamic torque (inch/lb) 7.45 x Lever Force (lb.) x braking radius

Cam Lever Travel Data:

  • Gap between friction pad faces and disc when new = .048" total.
  • Angular movement of lever required to actuate brake when new = 7º 30'.
  • Maximum axial movement without intermediate adjustment = .387".
  • .208" total wear allowed before adjustment of each side.
  • Power Factor: M38F and M47F Series 1X, 200 Series 3.5X
