If you look at the manual for the Single Digit 3's you will see a piece on the back of the brake where it attaches to the fork/frame brake boss, this has a crosshead screw or allen wrench bolt, which is the alignment adjustor, It's clearly visible in the photo on this link. http://www.socaltrailriders.org/foru...xt-739-rd.html

If this is missing, the brake can not be adjusted, and really should be replaced by a complete unit
There are no alignment adjusters, just the spring attached to the square wrench flat. I was considering just replacing them with modern Avid V-brakes that have screw spring adjusters, but was hoping to get a few more miles out of them.
