    I am using a discount tool places powder for the items I am eBaying. I use Caswells for customers and my own parts. The Calipers themselves do not get that hot, it is the Rotors that get HOT

    THAT IS WHY TO TAKE THEM APART!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi all,
    I just did my calipers this week, (and redoing them, my error) but they are easy to disassemble. I just blast a little air into-em and the piston pops out. Never put seals in the oven......

    I am doing some now that I am removing the cups and seals. I am selling them after I am finished so I will let the new owners rebuild them.

    Brake Caliper Seals???

    When coating brake calipers, do you PC it and bake it with the cup and seals in, then replace the old seals with new ones or do you remove the cup and seals first, then mask the cylinder opening before coating and baking?

    Thanks!!
Working...
