Default Rear Brake Camshaft Lever ID...

I have a small selection of Rear Brake Camshaft Levers, A-2235.

All the ones for the LEFT side are marked with a "L".

However there are some without any markings... I am guessing that these are for the Right side?

Did the Right levers have no markings to distinguish them from Right and Left?

Thanks.

Pluck

all the A-2235 and A-2236 I have seen, none of them are marked left or right, at times I wish they were, if you are not paying attention when you are putting them together you can get them on the wrong side however the emergency brake arms on the rear backing plate are marked R or L . John

I have only seen Rear Brake Camshaft Levers, A-2235 with a 'L'. never ever seen a 'R', although I have heard they do exist.

Steve,

The ones I've looked at were marked.
If it's a good one...I'd use it....
