Two wheel assemblies per box, Universal (left or right) Kodiak Part # 2/RCM-133-7-8-SS: Kodiak Disc Brake - Two Wheel Set - Cap Style Rotor - All Stainless Steel - 7000 lbs Disc Brakes More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter stopping distance than drum brakes. Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts to have to repair or replace, thus reducing maintenance costs. Cap Style Rotor Assemblies The over the hub style rotor is made from cast iron, matching SAE specifications. Stainless Steel is ideal for high-temperature operations and offers a favorable friction coefficient to ensure adequate stopping power. Kodiak's rotors are vented to effectively dissipate heat, dramatically reducing the incidence of heat-related damage. Calipers Kodiak calipers are constructed of Stainless Steel to prevent flexing . Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake. Mounting Brackets Designed for axles with 5-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant Stainless Steel that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the bolts.
Points To Consider For Over the Hub Rotor Only
This type of rotor typically fits over a standard idler hub. Wheel studs are pressed into the hub only. The rotor is frequently wheel bolt piloted and is a loose fit on the hub. It is held in place by the wheel/wheel nuts.
Removal of the rotor can be accomplished with little effort once the wheel and caliper have been removed.
If either the rotor or the hub require replacement, the good component can be retained and re-installed, while the faulty component are replaced. With an integral (one piece) rotor/hub, the complete unit must be replaced.
Installation of an “over the hub” rotor effectively increases the overall hub face to hub face dimension by approximately 1/2”.
Wheel bolt thread length should be a consideration when installing an “over the hub” rotor.
Easy to convert an idler axle to a disc brake axle with an “over the hub” rotor.
