The old hoses looked fine inside (even dissected them). Still, they were
The calliper pistons seemed to still have firm pressure on the pads even with
the brake hose disconnected. Had to push the pads back off the rotor to get
the hub to turn freely. Should I have had to do that even with no fluid
pressure applied against the pistons?
The callipers didn't look in too good of a shape - old, rusty, bleeder screws
seen better bleeding days, etc. Pads looked fine - as did the rotors.
I believe the callipers need to be rebuilt. So, this week I will take them
up to MGOCs Octagon House in Swavesey and exchange them.
