Hi Phil,

You're right, I did not pick up that the inboard pad was frozen in the
carrier and thus ineffective. I agree, this was the likely cause of your
problem on #2 calilper.  Your experience adds creedance my contention that
good external brake PM should include a yearly tear down, including both pad
and guide pin inspection.  On my old Lancias I used to have to coat the pad
and carrier mating surfaces with a sprayed can solid MoSO2 coating to keep
the the pad free in its carrier.

Sounds like you are on top of your external brake problems, and no put down
intended in my earlier comments.  The condition of the flushed fluid will
give you some indication of the internal caliper conditions.  If really
gunky, dirty stuff, plan on early caliper overhaul, a dirty but zero cost
