Upper Brake Component

The upper brake component has two functions --

  • an assembly point for the actuator, the control line and the drive cylinder

  • a pivot arm for the pedal action

The pivot arm uses a hollow steel tube
(1.12" OD and 0.75" ID) as a structural feature.

  • The steel tube must be firmly fixed to the casting to transfer the torque and to prevent slippage.
