Hello again-Need a source or sources to purchase pistons, seals and brake pads for my new to me 94 Spider. Brake master cylinder already ordered having a difficult time for others mentioned. Any help would be greatly appreciated once again.
Thanks,
Chuck

Seals and pads are available at Classic Alfa. Not sure about the pistons, but are you sure that the pistons need to be replaced?

No I'm just assuming. The car laid idle for approximately 10 years so i figured they would be pitted and not reusable. I haven't dismantled any of them yet.

You can get rebuilt calipers from RockAuto, but in case you want to rebuild them yourself, here is my thread on setting the pistons orientation. They are a bit tricky and need to be correctly set.


Good luck.

I'll try to post pictures once I figure how to. I'll check out rock auto for those pistons. Thanks.

Thanks for that who would figure they had to be positioned correctly. I'm used to rebuilding motorcycle calipers where you just drop the pistons in. How can I get the actual size template for this installation?

You can print the pdf included in the thread on 8.5 x 11 paper. Its the right size.

Good luck,

Thanks Vin- I'll give it a try, and I'm also going to attempt to rebuild all 4 calipers with the help of your article.
