Slider bolts, caliper car­ri­ers and disc guards

Classics Monthly - - Workshop -


The caliper car­rier on sin­gle-pis­ton calipers can be re­moved, cleaned and painted with a high tem­per­a­ture or suit­able caliper paint. It’s usu­ally se­cured to the back of the up­right with a cou­ple of bolts, which should be tight.


On sin­gle-pis­ton calipers, make sure the slider bolts are clean and free to move. Clean the metal sur­face of the slider bolt with emery pa­per. Ap­ply a suit­able grease that doesn’t erode the rub­ber dust covers.


The brake disc guard that pre­vents road dirt con­tam­i­nat­ing the back of the brake disc can be­come heav­ily cor­roded, so it may be good op­por­tu­nity to clean and paint it. This will also mean the brake disc has to be re­moved.
