Rear Brake Cylinder Seals
I'm putting my brakes back together and need some new rubber dust shields (the ones that attach to the end of the piston and base of the caliper housing) I have just torn mine twisting them trying to get the pistons wound back, any ideas where best to buy these from and would it be best to renew the internal seals whist I'm at at????
Any tips on refitting would also be appreciated, and guidance on suitable lubrication to aid assembly (that won't contaminate the brake fluid).
I'm also a little puzzled as to why I have two different brake slider pins on each side, one having flats on two sides whilst the other has a reducing staged tapered effect. Do they need to be fitted into a particular position/way?
And lastly recommendations on thread locking compounds for the bolts when I refit them - most I have taken off show signs of red or blue compounds??
Your help would be much appreciated.
