bendix coaster brake tutorial

i gave assembly instructions to a member. thought this might be made sticky in restoration. what do you think?

this is fairly easy. these are the parts identified
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/coaster11-1.jpg
the main part is the brake arm assembly. it determines how the axle centers,so it is your side to side adjustment point.
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0517.jpg
in between the "ears" on these two pieces are where the brakes sit
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0518.jpg
lay the wheel flat with the large opening facing up, drop in the clutch with the "ears" facing up. make sure it is seated at the bottom
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0519.jpg
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0520.jpg
put all four shoes in the hub between the ears. make sure there is lots of grease in these parts to keep them from seizing. grease = cool
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0522.jpg
take the brake arm assembly, lift one side of the wheel, insert the opposite "ears", twist till they engage the brake shoes and drop in. dust cover against hub
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0523.jpg
now flip the wheel over and lay it down. take the bigger bearing, lay it bearings down in the hub
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0524.jpg
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0525.jpg
now take the sprocket and driver,install over axle, twist clockwise to engage clutch till it bottoms.
http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii186/raven9811/IMG_0526.jpg
bearings down on the smaller bearing, install the race, run it in  till everything is snug (finger tight), back it out 1/8th turn. put on the backup nut. this is done

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

Perfect!  GREAT visuals in your post.  + infinity on the info

My mnemonic device for coaster bearings (and 1-pc crank bearings too) is "balls in!".  As long as I always remember to say to myself Balls In, they work right.  Just did a Bendix on a Tuff 1 rear yesterday - all 3 bearings are "balls in" (bearing race out). 

All together now, "Balls IN!"

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

You forgot to mention that some of the brake shoes are one way installation; you
need to make sure that the shallow taper goes against the clutch. If you happen to
do it backwards (speaking from experience) your coaster brake will stick.
Why not just leave the shoes out and convert it into a free coaster?
Nice information for coaster brakes.

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

I took my TuffI apart this weekend.....found a bunch of "stuff" floating around in there.  Turns out I only have 2 of 4 brake shoes.....the others look like they have been chewed up, at least I assume thats what is left of the other shoes.

looks like Im kinda screwed

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

I know that this is an old post, but I used to take out 2 brake shoes out and it would freewheel, had a pretty good lag and no fun zzzzzzz sound, but it worked great for converting a coaster brake to a poor kids freewheel. I an not remember exactly how I did it and don't remember how much lag it did have, it's been 30+ years ago, but I ran it that way racing and riding it around until I broke my huffy frame on a flat landed jump.

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

nice tutorial.

When assembling the brake pads inside the hub, does the inside of the hub/outside of brake pad surface need to be greased or is it ok to have dry metal-metal?

thanks

Re: bendix coaster brake tutorial

lots of grease in the hub and on the outside of the shoe
grease keeps the metal to metal contact from causing to much friction and making heat
(picture sparks inside your hub) yikesyikes  lollol just kidding tonguetongue
so grease = cool cool
