Re: Sticking brake caliper, 88 90 2wd

<<  went to replace the pads today and cannot get the piston to restract,
 even if I open the bleeder hose or go so far as to remove the caliper
 from the hydraulics entirely.
 Yah, I can (and probably will) replace it, but does anyone have any
 suggestions such as a bath in penetrating oil?


Many calipers have pistons that thread back in.  "Sqeeze" back in is 
usually not the case if the center of the piston has a hex for an
allen wrench.
