Lubed Calipers on Friday(Pic Dump)

Lubed Calipers on Friday(Pic Dump)

Spent 5 1/2 hours Friday lubing the slide pins on the BMW’s calipers. I’ve never done any brake work before, this was easy and rather straight forward. while the rotors, pads, and calipers are rusty none of the bolts were seized.

The design of the Girling front calipers was easy to pull apart compared to the rear calipers which were more fiddly and had less room to work around.

Update: it was a bad ground.

Update: it was a bad ground.

I used my laser thermometer to measure the temp of the exhaust manifold trying to find the dead cylinder. Cyl #4 was half the temp as the others so I unplugged the #4 wire from the distributor and the engine ran exactly the same. Before pulling spark plugs out, I took my spark tester and plugged it into cyl #6 ( to be methodical), and now the car was running good. As I was unplugging the...

Winter front coming off.

The A/C condenser looks factory fresh, because it’s been covered it whole life.

Decided to take advantage of the nice weather, took my truck to the car wash and got it nice and clean.
