93 Brake overhaul

Hi Folks, Just about to attempt an overhaul of the front brake calipers on our Gulfstream Sun Voyager. All have been working ok up to now but I suspect one or more pistons are sticking. Is there a kit I can get to service the calipers and if so who would have it. I intend to make a video diary of the procedure which might aid others with the same intention. any help you can give would be appreciated. best regards, Nomad.

I have bought rebuild kits for the calipers on pick ups in the past, they may still be available through most any auto parts store. It's a lot easier to just replace the calipers then rebuild them, just a thought.

brake overhaul

Thanks Blackf350, I live in Ireland where american rv stuff is a little more difficult. It can be got ok but it takes awhile longer and as you say it comes in a truck. Truckers here are getting a tough time just now with the price of fuel around 10 dollars a gallon. Anyhow back to brakes......I took off a front caliper this morning and found all was well with the pistons but had a broken brake pad. This was the cause of worries as it explained the klonking noise I heard recently. So all is well with the calipers but I will see if I can track down a rubber and seal kit anyway along with a new set of pads. Trouble is I dont know what spartan chassis I have and what axle/caliper it is, but anyway I will find out as I go along.

Good luck with the trucking. We are coming to Florida for month of December and would like to maybe meet some of our IRV2 members at an Rv weekend or something, any suggestions ? We will be based in Port Charlotte . best regards, Nomad (Mike)

I didn't realize you are in Ireland, that does make a difference. You may be able to find parts on rockauto.com . Look for a manufacturer's name and part number on the caliper, Spartan sourced the calipers from a vendor like Bendix or Rayspestos and parts should be available
Our fuel in in the $4.20 range US but we don't have near the taxes y'all have on petro or diesel. Let it be known you will be in the US and when on the Just Conversation forum and you may be able to get some response.
