68-82 Brake Calipers


Can "O" ring seals be fitted as a direct replacement for lip seal type?

Or does it require new pistons/ liners?

Having a lot of bhp is all very well, but on these forums it's torque that counts

Just new pistons (these are 'O' ring specific) - did this on mine at least 10 yeas ago - they have been perfect - most likely that the calipers have been stainless steel lined (its always been a weak point) - its essential that the braking system is cleaned out including piston bores.
