[Healeys] Split the Calipers?

I split mine and put them back together without any issues. There is a special rubber washer inside. I believe BCS has them. People debate about replacing the bolts. Some say they stretch others say they don’t. I don’t think I replaced my caliper bolts.

Hi All,

Time to attack the front calipers on the BT7.  They've been sitting for over 30 years and are really sad looking. 

I'm thinking the only way I'm going to get a purchase on them to get them out is to split the calipers.  The factory manual, however,  sez (in BOLD) to not attempt this.   Why is this?  In the archives folks say it can be done.  Anything I have to watch for other than being clean and careful?  

Cheers and Thanks,

Mike Tobin
