[DML] Re: Specs on rear caliper bolts?

There are many areas of the Delorean that have little to no
documentation. About the only thing mentioned about the calipers is
that you are not supposed to take them apart. The book considers them
unrepairable. The mechanics were supposed to just replace them. As a
practical matter now of course you can rebuild them. You can also
reuse that tiny square "O" ring that seals the to halves together (I
use silicon sealer on it). I just tighten those bolts up "real tight".
No spec. You may choose to use some Lock-Tite on them also. You have
to be sure the parts are very clean with no burrs, nicks, or
scratches. The bores where the pistons go can't have pitting and if
the plating is worn off the pistons they have to be replaced. The
bores can be sleeved. Most of the vendors have an exchange program for
cores. They also offer sleeved calipers or you can send them out
yourself directly to places like White Post.
