Tru-Bar Pedals and Mounts – What is a Tru-Bar Balance Bar?
The Tru-Bar balance bar system represents the highest degrees of precision and durability in manual bias adjustment and control between two separate master cylinder circuits. Tru-Bar twin cylinder brake pedals and master cylinder mounts utilizes a fixed position trunnion bearing in the pedal arm. The Tru-Bar system eliminates all side play and adjustment slack. In addition to the trunnion bearing, each master cylinder pushrod is attached to the balance bar bolt with mono-ball rod ends. The balance bar and master cylinder rods end operate freely, but without play or slack, in this high response, precision system. Durability and response are further enhanced with a full 7/16”-20 thread and diameter bearing bar. The combination of precision movement and the slightly wider thread as compared to 3/8”-24 threaded balance bars, provides the fastest and most accurate adjustment of any balance bar system available.
BALANCE BAR TECH NOTE
All brake bias balance bars work best and most efficiently when part of a closely balanced system that allows the balance bar to be generally centered in its lateral adjustment position as a baseline static setting. Any vehicle requiring extreme adjustment on the balance to achieve acceptable deceleration control should be re-evaluated regarding the combination of master cylinder sizes and caliper piston bore volumes being used.
