The new gallery seals & pistons/seal kit arrived earlier this week, so later today I will be rebuilding the caliper ready for refit.

After trying to get the original calipers fluid connection to seal which I couldn't make it dry, I decided to use the new vented caliper I bought but swapped over the stainless steel pistons, now it's leak free & fully working.

None of the above, the old caliper was to rusty where the hose fits & couldn't get the copper washers to seal, I changed the front hoses to get rid of the short rigid pipe, so my front hoses come from the chassis bracket/pipework direct to caliper inlet via a banjo bolt & washers, I have some Dowty bonded washers coming so going to fit them to both sides instead of the 10mm inside diameter copper washers. I bought some new copper washers but the outside diameter is to bigger than expected but they work.
