Girling rear wheel cylinder dust cover fitting

Recommended Posts

Yeah I know,

it is not possible to fit the spring plate after (first) the leaver, so I never told this.

My main concerns are:

- what way around to put the spring plate and the loching washer

- and NEVER punch the distance washer in or out!!

Hi Michael,

after reading your and my post serveral times I think we both describe the same.

Yes, you describe and I understand: you fit the locking washer with a little punch in its final position.

This may be needed and I have absolutely made no critic about doing that.

But one of my 2 main concerns, independent from your advice, is about the distance washer,

the little tiny u-piece with the ends bended up: never punch THIS in or out like Buckeye describes it.

This caused my much pain the first time I did that (and then never again)

You and me, we are shure still friends?

Ciao, Marco

You are welcome, last one is how to open this §$%&/?! mechanism,

because this can make a strong man desperated


Stick two small screw drivers between and with this you have two "ramps" to slide the locking plate over the tooth


Take a pliers and pull the lock plate out


Here a small drill and a hook would be helpful


I thinks they may be heat treated. so drilling might not be an option ill try and see if i get a carbide through one or check one with my hardness files

Merci à Marco pour ce tuto qui m'a bien aidé pour le sens de montage des différentes pièces .
Çà à l'air facile sur un moyeu posé sur l'établi ................ c'est une autre paire de manches quand on le fait sur l'auto !
Bonne route
