Hi Cliff,
im sorry i broke my phone so i cannot take a pic. i just need help on putting the caliper back on. i cut it off with saw. but im having trouble getting the new on. the cable sits in a notch on a lever that is spring activated. but the notch is shaped like a flare nut so you cannot just push it straight in. is there a special tool for this?
