Installation of disks of forward brakes of new type in rotary fists of old type

Necessarily it is necessary to check up length of hairpins of fastening of a wheel. If it makes 36,5 mm them it is necessary to replace necessarily with hairpins in length of 40 mm (nuts of fastening of a wheel should be established on the corresponding length of a carving).


Check биений (measurement by the indicator of hour type)
