ExhibitPlus NewBrakeHangerSpacers15Jul09 001
15-July-09 Although we had finished the spacing washers earlier to print, upon assembly we found the clearances between the brake hangers and side rods just too close for comfort. With everything new and tight, there was only 1-2 thousands clearance. Surely they will interfere after the axle boxes and rods wear in and loosen up. We decide to make new spacers (1/8") to move the hangers inside a bit.
