disassembling type-44 rear calipers

Thanks for the info. The diagram is really nice. I think the 5000's had a
slightly different caliper... I don't see the spring above the threaded push
rod. Anyway, that should make things a little easier. I guess you just used a
couple really long nails to get the snap-ring out, right? Sounds tough: any
advice there?

to take out the rubber seals before getting them coated, but the parking brake
mechanism doesn't seem to want to come out after taking the spring out. There's
a large snap-ring deep inside the piston bore; is this necessary to remove the
parking brake mechanism? Also what kind of tool could I use on that? The
snap-ring pliers I have are to wide and short to reach all the way into the
bore. I haven't been able to find a set of long nose snap-ring pliers. Any
advice is much appreciated.
