On a single piston caliper (69 camaro), is the outer brake pad supposed to float or ride in the caliper, or is there a clip that holds it in place? I know the inner is held by a clip that slides into the piston.........

float, but use some of that disk brake stuff, you know the anti sqeel stuff it will hold it on the ear's, also i belive they ahd a little anti-rattle shim between them and the caliper.

The outer pad has two small tabs one at each end of the pad. Bend them so the pad will fit the caliper tight. You may have to use pliers to seat the pad, the other pad has a clip that holds the pad into the caliper piston. By bending the tabs and fitting the pad tight will eliminate a rattle. And yes use dics brake antisqueal between the caliper and pads good luck Garry
