Merlin rear brake linkage.

Post  painterb on Sun Jul 10, 2011 3:05 pm

I'm trying to connect the linkage but have a problem. The shaft through the frame from the pedal side on the left to the linkage side on the right fits OK. However the exposed bar on which to fit the linkage is round and threaded. The hole in the linkage plate is also round. This means that when the plate is attached to the shaft and secured with a nut, movement of the brake pedal isn't transmitted to the linkage as the shaft just turns in the plate.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Round hole in plate and round hole on shaft??? obviously wont work,file a flat on shaft and get the plate welded up on one side of the hole and then file it to correspond with the flat on the shaft,having first worked out the correct angle for the plate ,JH
