1990 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
I just rebuilt my font brake system.
I replaced the rotors (one was trashed an the other
was below minimum thickness) However while replacing the rotors I noticed that the plastic piston
in the caliper was cracked and crumbling. Sooo I
also bought 2 rebuilt caliper assemblies (I figured if
one piston was gone the other wasn't too far behind)
However when I got everything re-assembled and
had bleed the brakes, I noticed, that while I had pretty good "brake-pedal" Both calipers were leaking
where the brakehose is bolted to the caliper.
I tried teflon tape, and while that helped some they
still leak. The two copper washers look just fine.
Any Ideas? Or suggestions?
have the same problem?
