True in the OEM configuration...however, when you look inside and observe the mechanical operations of the drum breaks...whether you pull or push makes no difference. By inverting the lever, you loose no ability in function or performance on the brake mechanism itself. Rattling and banging of the control rod against the swing arm is a potential, but function will not be affected as the mechanical leverage is preserved.
