rear brake calipers
I can't think of a way to ask this question without looking like a total idiot, so let's just get it out: Is there anything preventing you from accidentally swapping the left and right rear calipers?
I think I may have swapped them in haste, because I notice that the bleed screws are on the bottom half of the calipers, which seems wrong - I don't see how you would ever get all the air out.
The weird thing is, I asked the indy down the street (which I only trust with very simple stuff) to bleed the brakes, and they reported that they couldn't get pedal, but said nothing about the calipers being swapped. So either they are designed this way for some reason I cant imagine, or I am not the only idiot on the block. Anyone?
