What do I have?

I had a problem with a front caliper hanging up, which, of course required repair.

During the process I noticed the caliper had wedge-like retainer/slider profiles. The end capturing the caliper in position had a half-wedge top section retained by a single bolt.

The Bosche units that I found by using the search feature only showed the pin-slider type or the 4-piston type.

Can anybody tell me what the heck was installed on this 1999 model?

Also, a little help with what ABS sensor would also be appreciated.

Thanks folks.

Bob

Bob,
It's a bendix caliper found on a 1999 fl60 international freightliner all 4 are the same. they were easy to find
some one else said Bendix #4150844 same as on a GM C6500 truck
I will try to find out the part number for the abs sensor today.
Good Luck,Ray

Hi Ray.

Thanks for the information. Now the questions comes to mind whether those particular brakes ever experienced a recall. I know my Alpine (72127) wasn't on the recall list but, as far as I know, that list only addressed Bosch brakes.

I will say that after cleaning, lubing and reassembling them they sure didn't move without a great deal of force. The wedge had to be hammered into place before the retaining bolts would line up properly.

However, after driving the Alpine and using the brakes to stop from 55 MPH on a downhill stretch, both front sides indicated the same temperature (rotors were about 250 degrees; the hubs at about 100 degrees).

Also, the ABS sensor is not plastic but rather a push-in cylinder-like metal probe with a long electrical lead.

Any help anyone can provide regarding a replacement sensor will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again, Ray.
