DISASSEMBLING WHEEL CYLINDERS
1. Using a suitable tool, pry boots away from cylinders and remove.
Clean thoroughly and blow dry with compressed air.
CAUTION: Do not use a rag as lint from the rag will adhere to bore surfaces.
Inspect cylinder bore and piston for scoring and pitting.
Wheel cylinder bores and pistons that are badly scored or pitted should be replaced.
Cylinder walls that have light scratches, or show signs of corrosion, can usually be cleaned with crocus cloth, using a circular motion.
Black stains on the cylinder walls are caused by piston cups and will not impair operation of cylinder.
ASSEMBLING WHEEL CYLINDERS
Before assembling the pistons and new cups in the wheel cylinders, dip them in clean brake fluid.
If the boots are deteriorated, cracked or do not fit tightly on the push rods or the cylinder casting, install new boots.
1. Coat cylinder bore with clean brake fluid.
