Default Integra 91 Brakes


A few months ago I reported that I have replaced the pads on my front
brakes in order to correct a problem that exists in the brake
cylinders. Rust
I knew that wasn't the right solution but it was going to fix the
problem for a few months. Little that I knew that was a very short
term solution. The problem is back.
Most likely the problem is the result of rust in the wheel cylinders.
Question: Does it make sense to remove the cylinders and polish their
interior or should I just replace the calipers, including the
cylinders?

Thanks for the help

John

You have calipers and pistons. "Cylinders" are used in drum brakes, which
you do not have.

I think I told you last the time that the pistons were rusty.

You cannot clean the pistons: the rust will be too deep, and too
widespread. The caliper bores will be just fine.

You have a choice:
1) replace the calipers with aftermarket (OEM is no longer available)
2) rebuild the existing calipers with new OEM internal parts.

I have checked with the local parts supplier for the kit and was told
that it is no longer available . After all the car is 20 years old.
Cost about $70 for one caliper set excluding the pads that I do not
need.
I'll do the replacement when I must switch from my Winter tires. Next
month .

Thanks Tegger

I don't think there ever was any "kit". Not from Honda, anyway. You buy the
parts independently. And all the parts ARE still available.

Are you getting two calipers for that $70? If so, either they're really low
quality or you're getting quite a deal. One /piston/ alone from Honda is
$70.

Good luck. Just be /really/ clean about it. And if you use the pedal-push
bleed method, do not allow the pedal to travel any further than it does in
normal use.

You're welcome.
