So I started back on working on the brakes. I cleaned em up and honed out the brake calipers with this neat little hone.

Here are the new caliper seals and dust washers order form and packing label. These are 1983 Aspencade specific. this being due to the integrated front and rear brakes, the right front brake and rear brake use the same seals. they are also inter linked via the rear brake pedal.

And here we have one of the calipers all cleaned up and new seals and dust seals installed. It is tricky and frustrating.. Just take your time. The trick is too bend seal in half and insert one side and slowly walk the seal into the caliper using a tooth pick being careful and slow. they will fit in nice and snug. Just make sure and clean out the grooves. I used a brand new battery terminal cleaner and worked like a charm. then i honed caliper and cleaned it up for tenth time and installed the seals and dust seals.

And here is the right front side with pistons re-installed. Just a tad bit of assembly grease and they slipped right in nice and firm.

And here is the left side. Notice it is larger than right side and rear brake. This is the caliper that is directly operated by the front brake lever. Also ensure the slider of the caliper moves freely. This is the slider next to my pinky finger. If it does not move freely your brakes will stick and squeal no matter how clean everything else is. And all the anti squeal material will not stop squeal till this is free. This is due to the fact the caliper binds and does not float as it was designed.

And here is a fully assembled caliper. I NEVER EVER EVER use any of the brake pad glue garbage. If your brakes are clean and properly lubed it is not needed.

See this metal clip. Make sure it is there and in good condition. This also can cause brake squeal. This due to the fact the brake caliper can shift in position. I cleaned it on all of em and tightened it and re-installed.
