so if I can find the ball bearing and put it all back together what is the correct procedure? just tighten the **** out of the two sides, then put the dust cap and brake arm on, mount brake arm to frame, then tighten it all down with the outer bolts?
Basically. don't crank the bearings down hard, just tight enough so their is no play. if you go to hard they will bind.
