What to use to clean caliper oil and dust seal seats?
« on: November 08, 2013, 10:09:29 AM »
Hey guys, I'm rebuilding my front calipers and I'd like to know what to use to clean the seats of the calipers were the oil seals and dust seals fit. The aluminum has what must be dried break fluid that worked its way under the seals. This stuff is tough to get off and it is causing the pistons to stick because of the interference between the seals and pistons. Right now I have used a pick and tooth brush with brake clean and a number of household cleaners. I can get most of it off but not all, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
