Re: '91 Bluebird Disc Brake Caliper

If it it actually canadian, some of the parts may well be different. Especially in diesel equipment, etc.
That is why sometimes truck or equipment is sometimes cheaper to buy but when you want parts, its waiting 2 months, and a lot of hassle.

Re: '91 Bluebird Disc Brake Caliper

had to leave where i was broken down in a hurry, so i clamped my rear brake line and tied up my caliper. didn't make it too far when the caliper came loose again but some HALiburton Angels got the wheels off, and the caliper was shot anyway. i did get a new caliper - but the brake line pulled out so i may need a new one of those. However, after bleeding my brakes (1st time), my brakes seem more solid then b4 all this as there was some "pulsing" probably caused by an old worn caliper. oh, i have to wear the dunce cap on that "saddle" - turns out that it's the pads that fit in where i thought another part went. so on we go... thanks for the help
