replaced my rear brake pads and now my e-brake doesn't work. I removed the pin off the back side of the inner pad (I now realize I shouldn't have, but it seemed to throw off the caliper alignment). Brakes work fine, but I have no parking brake.

Does that pin serve any purpose?

WOW, were my old pads ever worn on a diagonal bevel, not even. the way the caliper mounts on and the way the piston torqs when you brake, it seems like they'll wear the same way again. Both pads had the opposite bevel so when you take them out and hold them together, they almost square up. Is this normal?

LAST... the brake sliders/pins with the hex/allen heads on them (that slide thru the pad slots/holes). Both had a V-notch worn in them in a couple of spots. My cousin said not to worry. I'm wondering if they'll hang up pads as they wear and eventually get pushed over that spot on the slider.

thanks

I don't know the answer to your question but I can tell you that I recently replaced my brakes with Sumo Brakes and they had no pin in the pad like the Nisin brakes I removed. The brakes seem fine to me even without the pin.

does your parking brake/e-brake still work? I wondered if that little pin might push the piston to lock the brakes.

the rhino manual almost seems to describe there is no e-brake adjustment.

The single rear brake system is the pits. That's why they went to dual rear on later models.
My 660 is the same way. There is movement in the caliper when the brakes are applied which causes the beveled wear. Only thing you can do about it is when you do the brake pads, make sure everything is clean, including the two rods that slide in and out of the little rubber boots (lube with some anti-sieze compound), make sure the pad pins are in good condition and lube these up too with a bit of anti seize.

the shims were missing. will they stop the bevelled wear?

what about my park brake? It worked before i did this.

and that brake pad pin...?

The e-brake on these are aggravating to say the least. there is an adjustment under the console, and a screw on caliper. but I cant get it to work.
