ok so after having my bike apart for 3 months or so ive finally started to reasemble and ive ran into a problem. i bought a +2 lsr swinger from a forum member and am in the process of putting everything back together. got the swinger, shock, axle, sprocket and hub all back together and now ive hit a bump with the brake hub and brake caliper. the guy sent me a modquad caliper mount and this is where my problem lies. maybe im doing something wrong? heres some pictures i snapped. if more are needed please let me know. i would really like to have this thing sitting on all fours tonight. thanks for the help!

My Tucker arm just has 2 pieces of what looks to be a sleeve that went around a bolt to space it. I could get you some pics if you want them just LMK.

I didn't catch this thread soon enough to help you out but I have the ModQuad brake assembly and the spacers are aluminum. Mine is on a custom +3 swing arm, for the record I've had trouble with the aluminum bracket breaking in rough woods...I've had to order a second one form Mod Quad and I'm working on a solid (without the holes) piece in a local machine shop to eliminate the breaking.

Mod Quad is junk. Unfortunatly I have their round carrier as well. I bought a package deal from Eyeball Engineering. Took the carrier out because I had to drill the hole in the swing arm to get to the grease zerk. Only to find a mod quad carrier.

When the bearings go bad I am not even messing with it. A RAD carrier is going back in.

My neighbor works in a shop that does CNC machine work with different metals and he took the old one that I broke and rewelded for a spare; he traced or outlined it with the computer then he'll cut it whenever he gets the time and the aluminum...haven't heard from him in a few weeks so I should call I guess. You may not break yours unless you're in some rough rocky woods at high speed...but then again I'm not as fast as I used to be 10 years ago and I still broke mine.
good luck,
