Im trying to install a set of AC brakes. I have the set from Larry Skidmore. I have the right side bolted to the backing plate but something is not right. The band is not lining up right with the drum and seems to be to long. Can someone talk me through it. Im sure Im doing something wrong but I'm not sure what.

Where is the band too long? As far as lining up with the drum, it looks good in your picture.

I have heard that you will probably need to tweak and bend the band to make it conform perfectly to the outer diameter of the drum. This will help to prevent a "mushy" pedal feel and give you better contact between band & drum.
