Caliper rebuild- anti seize

Postby 'ol pappy t » Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:42 am

Question about rebuilding calipers. Being old school trucker, I have always used anti- seize on almost everything that is subject to the elements, and found that it works forever. I saw a old mixer chassis that had been stored outside for about 10 years and was to be restored and put back in service, and it came apart like a new truck off the assembely line ! It was especially useful when we had aluminum rims on steel hubs, always came apart. Matter of fact I worked for a guy that would fire anybody not using it on their truck . So, I was wondering why I don't see anybody using on some of the most vulnerable pieces on a bike, especially on brake bolts, pins and such . Maybe I'm missing something here that I haven't heard of yet and I don't want to have a problem later down the road. Thanks for any input folks.

I used it all over the place. Use it on spark plug threads...brake caliper slider pins, on all wearing parts on pads...cuts down squeal...I have been a mechanic on heavy trucks for over 30 years, use it on lugnuts, brake drums, hubs, rims...

It's also my best friend, use it on all threads (whether exposed to the elements or not!). Wonderful stuff if a little messy!!
