Caliper Rebuild kit?
I can get a rebuild kit for the rear calipers on my son's '83 380SEL but it will take a couple of days. The dust covers look good, just leaking brake fluid.
It's just an o-ring that's bad so is there anything special about that o-ring? If I can find a high temperature viton o-ring that's the same size (from a local hydraulic hose shop), can I use it??
Viton is good to 1450psi and 400F for extended periods, the best rating of the common o-ring materials.
//leaking from the rear!
US '87 560SEC with Euro headlights, clear markers, H&Rs, 18x8.5, ATE slotted rotors with semi-metallics, BergWerks FGS, 3.07 Limited Slip.
In progress - FrankenBenz SEC: GM LS6 5.7L engine with custom 4L60E 4-spd overdrive transmission, GM rack and pinion.
One of my goals with the FrankenBenz is to scare women and children, and to have Lexus drivers spill their latte.
