Replacing the Rubber seal around the front brake piston on a Triumph
>How do you replace the rubber seal around the piston on the
front brakes of a TR4? There are no tools for do this that
I know of and they are difficult to fiddle into place.
I made a little tool:
I found a tube about 56mm in diameter, shortend it to 1/2" and
pushed the tube into the rubber gasket so that only the outside
lip is on the tube. Now it is easy to fit the inner
side of the rubber to the caliper. After that just put in the
the piston, that is easy done by hand. Now remove the tube, push
the outer part into the groove - that's it.
Done in 5 minutes/seal.
