FRONT WHEEL BRAKE DISC GASKET

Postby stevenstrack » Fri May 14, 2010 2:30 pm



Need help on finding gasket material to make a gasket for the front wheel brake discs. I took the discs off and what gasket material remained disintegrated. The IPB shows items 13 and 14, doesn't specify what 13 is but shows item 14 as a shim dampner and requires two. All i saw when i remove my discs was the paper type gasket and didn't really pay much attention to the thickness. I can only imagine that this shim or gasket material is for vibration and may actually position the brake disc. Where can i find and what material do i need to make this from? Help!!

I'm not quite sure I understand what you're talking about. I can't remember ever seeing a gasket of any kind as part of the front rotor assemblies. Where exactly did you find this?

It's in the Honda parts breakdown catalog for the front wheel. Items 13 & 14.

I'm looking at the diagram for the wheel, attached. Item 13 is the brake rotor itself, item 14 is one of the bolts that fastens the rotor to the wheel (the bolt goes through the left rotor, through the wheel, through the right rotor, and a nut goes on the bolt on the right side):

Your picture is different from the Honda web site Hondapartsnation.com. Why is your illustration different. I'll go by yours if you say it doesn't need it.

Aha, now I know what's going on. You've got an 83. I pulled up the wheel for an 83:

Items 11 and 13 are the rotors for an AC, items 14 are the rotors for the C, IC and DC models. What those models apply to? You've got me. I've yet to be able to find a list for them all. Depending on the model, there's either a shim, a spacer, both, or neither.

However it does call it a "Shim, Damping" so I would try to see if any thin gasket material would do. Everywhere I checked online it showed as "unavailable." I wouldn't try paper or cardboard, because it will just burn up with the heat from the brakes.
