I have some late 80's Royal Compe brake calipers that are going back on a bike project.
Took everything apart, cleaned them up, put them on and the rear works as it should. Still a little loose to the rim maybe.
The front Is tightened down with minimal clearance between pad and rim as usual and rim is centered between calipers.
Pull on brake lever, pads touch rim and then right side pad remains on rim, (see pics) so the brake is not centered anymore.
I can't tighten the center nut any more or they won't pivot at all. The whole assembly is tight in the fork.
Am I a dumb ass, are they worn out or is there a fix?
I lubed the brake as well.
