I have some questions regarding the reconditioning of the standard 8.4" brake callipers (see my built thread).
Firstly, according to the instructions that came with the reconditioning set, I understand the sequence of reassembly as follows:
1) place new fluid seal in the corresponding groove
2) press in piston until approx. 8 mm is left protruding
3) fit new wiper seal to new seal retainer
4) slide wiper seal assembly over the piston and press home squarely.
Is this the recommended way to reassemble the callipers or do you have any better ideas?
And secondly, what the is the torque specification on the two bolts that attach the two halves of the callipers together?
Thank you very much for your input ..
