I'm wrapping up the install of the Ford front disc brake kit (JLH Minor). There's a wire spring clip that somehow is attached to the end of the caliper, but it is not clear exactly how that is supposed to work. Any advice or pics from folks that have done this conversion?

Thanks. Mine looks slightly different -- but very similar. Looks like I need to figure out how to get it to go over the "top" of the caliper arms.

A pic of mine, spring not really installed.

Hi Drew,

Just got your email. You need to hold the spring clip in the hole and use a set of pliers to lift the ends onto of the carrier. Do both ends , they can be a struggle sometimes but rely on this spring in the retainer to hold itself in place.

Thanks. Took some effort, but I was able to get both of them installed.
