Re: Front Drum Brake

The cable is 2.5mm, Japanese I'm guessing, because there are no markings on it; the PO installed it. The fitting on the ends are smaller that the holes they fit into by quite a bit (handlebar & brake drum lever). The handlebar controls are Domino. I'd have Barnett make one for me if I knew the corre...

Re: Front Drum Brake

Odd stuff going on. The axle fitted to the Paioli fork was modified to work with the Dnepr backing plate; the shoulder that bears again left side dust cover was cut back to allow a top had to be used, I'm guessing to adapt it to the fork. So that's how I assembled the leading link. As a result of cu...

Re: Front Drum Brake

I've read through as many of the past posts on adjusting front drum brakes, chalking to determine maximum contact surface, etc. The photos from Bill Glasers Brake Service page were helpful, until I got to the last bit about installing the 2 "top hat" bushings. The inner one... http://myural.com/Fron...

Re: What to do?

Looks like the lifters are rusted too. If the engine looks like this, what's the rest of it look like? Kind of hard to understand why the cylinder and piston would be removed for a "valve" problem. And what are the marks on the end of the piston rod? Looks like complete tear down material to me. I h...

Re: The Hormone Guide.

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties. The 1st man had married a woman from Alabama, and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and cleaning that needed to be done at their house. He said that it took a couple of days b...

Re: Front Drum Brake

Well, it would be a little more accurate than listening for that telltale chirp, chirp,chirp of a dragging brake shoe IF there were a second hole. Or, you might use it to blow out brake dust and any accumulation of small furry creatures. And then I had this thought, with the wheel off of the bike yo...

Re: Front Drum Brake

Thanks Van, I'm good, just lazy, and impatient. JUS' WANNA GO RIDE!!! At least I was correct in my assumption it was an inspection hole. Wonder why they didn't put in the second hole? Did find some 21mm ID steel tube from McMaster-Carr http://www.mcmaster.com/#metric-smooth-bore-seamless-steel-tubin...

Front Drum Brake

An old proverb says, "A fool may ask more questions in an hour than a wise man can answer in seven years." I've only got one for the moment. Both the Ural and Dnepr front wheel drum brakes have an inspection hole at about the 1 o'clock position. What's it for? You can see the gap between the shoe an...

And I fit one on my '63 Dnepr (at least that's what the title on my rig has for it's age).

Re: Interesting consept....

I email MadRamps to see what they had to say... Hi Lew, Appreciate your email. The recommended max weight per ramp is 700lbs. Based on photos of the Ural sidecar it appears that the MAD-RAMP would work. The one question/concern we have is the back tire of the motorcycle and the sidecar tire and whet...
