Brake Piston Blues

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by elkriverscott, Aug 10, 2018.

  1. Disregard piston question. I was using a 3 ounce canister mini grease gun and could not tell if it was working. Took two tubes but took lots more pumping than I would have thought. Easy to clean, and I was able to screw the grease gun tip into the banjo bolt hole.

    Hook a greese gun to where the bleed screw is and pump it out. I have done this with great results on ones that have sat for 30+ years.

    I ended up buying a used caliper.. But would it be possible to open the bleeder on the caliper and use the brake lever to push the piston out? Seems like it would work.
