Re: Brake Help please!
I did drive it last week with the old pads and (different caliper) go figure! I tried to re-bed the old pads with multiple hard stops (although a short drive). Came home jacked up the pass side tire and drag hadn't changed.
Since then changed pads, caliper, abbuttments, clips, MC, tried a different flexible line, and removed more material from upper boss based on dial indicator readings, and tried shimming the caliper outward with thin washers.-No difference-noting the difference between all changes one at a time.
With the caliper body off and just the abuttment and pads on-it takes very little pressure (tried by hand) to create substantial drag.
To put in perspective with everything assembled: If you install wheel and try spinning by hand, tire doesn't quite make a full rotation. The other side same effort 1.5-1.75 rotations.
Currently the pistons seem almost even in outward displacement, the last reman calipers one piston was sticking out farther.
I have not driven it in its current form since I didn't want to cook the pad/rotor since both are a fresh surface. The other side spins free as ever with new pads and clips etc...
