Here’s a picie of one of the calipers before fitting it. The large threaded collars provide adjustment for the floating process….usually about 1-1.5 mm of float is enough. High temperature 0 rings on either side of each cliper arm, allow for a bit of extra float to absorb any back pressure on the caliper pistons, thus avoiding a loss of “pedal” after taking sharp corners. ( ie what is termed “brake pushback” often found with some leading legs.

That’s some nice work @ken_moncrieff, what bike are they for again?
