Front hand brake question
The only thing I would change to everyones suggestions, is not to use never sieze on the caliper slide pins. Never sieze is petroleum based & will cause the rubber dust boots to swell & soften up over time, & deteriorate. Get some silicone brake lube at any auto parts store. Its compatible with all the rubber components of the brake system. A small tube or little sample type package is pretty cheap. I would only use the never sieze on the threads of any bolts that go into anything aluminum. Steel bolts & aluminum have a tendency of almost corroding themselves together over time. I've been doing automotive brakes for over 21 yrs, & these are some of the things I've seen over the years. Over all its a pretty easy job. If you've done an alternator conversion, your more than qualified to do this.
