Ok, here's my learning from this glorious task which appartently is not over 

- Even with having been soaked in penetrating oil for several days, it is 
still possible to twist a guide pin to it's demise.  Of course, when you 
have such Arnoldian strength as I, you should expect nothing less.

- Due to the use of non-vented rotors on some t44's, the caliper guide is 
not necesarily transplantable even though the bolt centerlines are.

- It's quite commone for the lower guide pin to freeze up, as both were in 
said condition at the time of my reconditioning, even with in tact boots.

-Doing brakes in the rain is a wicked p.i.a., but sometimes the end 
justifies the means (like when you don't have a spare car anymore).

And now my last question.  In Jeopordian fashion, I think the answer will be 
one of two things:

- Your ebrake cables are binding; or
- You need to refurbish the caliper.

So what's my question?

If you guessed "why are me brakes dragging," then you are correct.  Can 
anybody verify my thesis with btdt?
