Abstract	A disc brake 10 has a caliper 34 including apparatus 52 for 
retracting the piston 68 of the fluid motor portion 44 of the caliper 
to a non-braking position when the brake is not applied. Consequently, 
runout, wobble, or axial movement of the brake disc 12 may space the 
friction elements 62, 64 of the brake from the friction faces 18, 20 of 
the brake disc so that the friction elements do not drag on the disc 
when the brake is not applied.
