Del, I'm a ways from Roseville. But my office is only about a mile from where you hang a left to head east on 80 to Roseville. We should talk...

If I feel confidant in the GTV6, I'm going to try and make Nationals.

Boy, that would be fantastic. Let's see how far I get this next week.

Hmmm, maybe I should get a couple more transport permits just in case. I wonder if I can get them at AAA?

Well, the Saturday thrash is over before it really got started. Both front brake calipers blew seals. Which explains why the pedal hit the floor when slowing down to turn into our drive. BUMMER!!!



Perhaps a clue was the filthy barrels in the wheels.



I'm off to get the new tires mounted. Then I'll hit the phone to see if I can scare up some seals. But, that's a long shot. So I'll probably be ordering them Monday.

Meanwhile, I'll pull the calipers, change the hoses and repack the bearings.

Where are the brake pads? One problem with the Brembo calipers is that the pistons develop rust pits right where the seals ride. Inspect the pistons very carefully.

Those alloy calipers almost always require pistons...wes has good advice. Check carefully. Polish them.

I'm an idiot...LOL

I'm reminded again that rushing leads to mistakes, especially when you're tired. I'll check this when we're done mounting tires.

What this demonstrates also is that even if the pads fail completely and are ejected, the pistons won't exit the caliper...

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

Add to your knowledge that the rotors are harder than the pistons.

So, with it torn down with the brakes, is it time to jump in and rebuild the front suspension???

I'm leaning that direction.









Might have dodged a bullet, look at that hose
