Guys...

What was a quick flexi hose swap has turned into a full front brake overhaul? New braided flexi lines, disks and callapers etc... My question is should I replace the rear oil seals on the hub? They seem ok in place? Am I creating more work for no reason? I do have new spares?

Also advice on the piston please? Clean or replace?

Any advice?

Thanks.. The others are similar so I guess worth saving?

That slightly cruddy piston at the top can be polished nicely. You only need the cylinder surface to be smooth. The cruddy part is at the brake shoes - a little rust preventer wouldn't hurt if you keep it off the seal surface.

Nice job!

Robert
