Rotor direction?

Which way should the vanes on the front rotors face? Should they scoop the air in towards the center? Or sling the heat out as they turn?

Re: Rotor direction?

The end of the slot on the outter edge of rotor should be facing away from the front of the truck at a 12 o'clock position.So i guess that would be slinging.I hope that makes since.

Re: Rotor direction?

Re: Rotor direction?

Had the same problem first I removed my rears. I tapped on the "hat" section with a hammer as I applied leverage on the rear of the rotor. Also spray it with some penetrant.

No. I actually had to heat mine up along the edge of the shoulder and then hit it with a hammer in the same spot to get them off.
