    Great results Dan and I reckon your wife is right - most start off with something simple and work their up in complexity.

    Front callipers are assembled.

    Well almost, I need to find a pair of retaining/slide pins for the pads. One set was OK the other were badly rusted. Quick internet search came up empty, so a more thorough one is required.

    Wire buffed and treated all the bolts, spring clips and bleed nipples etc.

    Sometime back, the calliper housings were descaled, treated and repainted. In hindsight, having them zinc coated would have been better. Oh well.

    Used BOSCH rubber grease during the process.

    The replacement kits ordered from overseas were not correct. The square section ‘O’ ring was fine but the dust boots were the wrong size and shape. They would fit over the piston, but not around the flange of the calliper body. There was also no flat profile for the ‘C’ clip to sit, retain and seal.

    They also did not include the small ‘O’ ring that seals the fluid journal between the two housings. Not sure what they are for, initially thought they may have been for the three piston callipers, but only two seals were supplied.

    Finally found a set in Brisbane. A company called PROTEX have them listed. Part number K770S. $44 a set. The aforementioned ‘O’ring is included in this kit.
