Re: brake help?

Spray it down with Kroil or PB Blaster and let it soak for awhile. The bolts are torqued to a fairly high number.

Re: brake help?


Danny (Imelmo) recently posted a thread on a mix for rusted bolts...Mix 50-50 ATF and acetone, try that and if it doesn't work put some heat on it.

Re: brake help?

The spindle/rotor bearings are not pressed in. The bearings supporting the axle may be.

Re: brake help?

Some of these bolts may have lock tight on them, you may have to heat the spindal, then use your impact
