Caliper Que. HELP!!!

Any advice: Where my copper washer meets my caliper I have a little nick and when I go to bleed my system I will get a tiny drip, but enough to let you know it's there. Any suggestions on how to fill it up, I'm thinking JB Weld? It is very fine and little! Thanks in advance, Dana

I would think you would need to have the pad machined completly flat. A machine shop should be able to touch it. Most likely cheaper to buy an exchange caliper unless it is a real fancy one.

I would'nt trust JB at a point like that.

HEY 39: If you go to a good hardware store they sell rubber washers. I am sure you can find one about the right size you need. Probably cost you less than a quarter....DAVE

DO NOT PUT A RUBBER WASHER UNDER THE BANJO BOLT!!!!
Do you realize the amount of pressure the brake fluid is under during stopping? The pressure will imediately blow out the rubber and then you will be left with no front brakes...

Very good point.

Also trying to polish the imperfection out will cause the mating surfaces not to be square resulting in a pressure leak (and subsequent drawing of air). It has to be surfaced on a mill or discarded.
