Are instructions correct?
20 Aug 2021
Hi I have already bought these and am having trouble installing. The Dia-Compe instructions don't seem clear as the Rear L and Rear L in Fig C seem to me confused. Is this correct?
Also are all washer parts necessary for all bosses - i'm presuming mine are standard but I can't a snug fit nor proper spring tension.
this is correct, brake pads for the rear used need to be reversed as seen in the instructions. Essentially this means running the R pad on the left and the L pad on the right when installed as a rear caliper.

Will these brakes work on a 1985 Nishiki Cresta ?

The bike came with Dia-Compe 981's w/ one spring hole. Can these be used with that or do they need three holes.

Cheers !
These will fit with the single hole but set up may be slightly trickier.
