Have Rocky Mountain brakes on 1914 touring car. The spring on the passenger side on top that hooks to yoke breaks after using several times. Is it possible that the lever that hooks to the rod that goes to the front could on wrong side of car? The lever bends out toward the side of the car and makes the spring rub on the hub. Thanks

I wish those Rocky Mountain Brake springs were available, but they are not. I could use a few too. Both sides are the same.

You are hooking the spring in the wrong placed, maybe? ? Mine mount between the clevis pin head and the clevis, inboard, using the longer clevis pins.

Well? Were the photos of any help?
