DRUM AND ROTOR REPAIR (Cont).
DO NOT use a rotor that will not meet minimum wear specifications.
Failure to follow this warning may result in brake failure and serious injury
death to personnel.
Light scoring of rotor surface not in excess of 0.015 in. (0.381 mm) in
depth is normal and will not affect brake operation.
Parallelism is the measurement of the thickness of rotor at 4 or more
points around circumference of rotor. All measurements must be
made at the same distance in from edge of rotor, Thickness must not
vary by more than 0,0005 in. (0,0127 mm) from point to point.
Measure thickness of rotor at 4 points around circumference. If rotor measures less than
1.215- in. (30.86 mm) (M1009) or 1.465 in. (37.21 mm) (all except M1009), discard rotor.
If rotor thickness varies over 0.0005 in. (0.0127 mm), refinish to Table 7-2 specifications.

Check lateral runout.
Install rotor. (See TM 9-2320-
Attach dial indicator (1) to some
portion of suspension. Point of
plunger must contact rotor face
(2) about 1 in. (25 mm) from
Move rotor 1 complete rotation.
Lateral runout should not exceed
0.004 in. (0.102 mm). If lateral
(O. 102 mm), machine rotor.
