Brake Disc Inspection
A detailed brake disc inspection is needed to determine if the brake disc should be machined or replaced. Inspect brake disc friction surfaces on both
sides of the brake disc for:
Severe discoloration (bluing)
High heat surface damage (raised hard spots)
Brake discs showing any of the above described conditions MUST be replaced.
Disc Thickness Measuring
Each brake disc has the minimum allowed thickness cast, stamped or laser-etched into the disc hub.
Measure the brake disc thickness in 4 locations using either the Pro Cut International(TM) disc thickness measuring tool Part No. 50-902 or the
Hunter Engineering Company disc thickness measuring tool Part No. 25-99-2. Measurements MUST be taken the same distance from the brake
disc outer circumference to ensure consistency.
