There has been some discussion on the forum regarding issues with the downward pointing rear brake actuating arms of the early 50's vs. the change to upward arms on the later bikes, to eliminate the issue of possible servo-actuation of the brakes under certain hard braking conditions.
My '53 Square 4 has the downward pointing arm, and I'd like to change it over if the issues aren't insurmountable. One MAJOR advantage is that access to the brake cable adjusting fixture would be so much easier, not to mention the safety aspect.
Last night I searched through some 200+ forum posts on "brakes", but couldn't dig up any discussion regarding the actual steps (and parts) necessary to make this change.
Can anyone point me to a relevant discussion (and, yes, I have read the notes regarding this on the Draganfly brakes page)
