  • brake parts storage

    Does anyone have ideas on how to store used brake calipers and cylinders so as to prevent rust without completely disassembling everything to clean? Is there a way to flush the old fluid without damaging rubber parts? Thanks David

    Alcohol is a good flush, as for storing them without disassembly, I would put them in a sealed box or bag with a dessicant (like the little things you get in the pocket of your new leather jacket) that should be enough to keep them in good shape. Or just store them in a dry place if you have one.

      For long term storage I think you can still buy cosmoline in aerosol cans.

        I hesitate to suggest cosmoline as not sure if it is compatible with the rubber seals or not?

        Personally I would just disassemble, clean, and reassemble with a little silicone grease on the metal bits then I know it's going to be OK when I go to use it.

          This is a problem I generally don't have.Everytime I store away parts for future use I can never find them again(need an inventory system bad)
