[Healeys] Brake Calipers

 Best suggestion I've seen in today's posts is to have  the brake calipers professionally rebuilt rather than attempting to do it yourself. This is one of those examples of a cheap repair with very expensive consequences if done baddy -- If you send in the old calipers, it can't be that expensive since the parts are cheap.

I think White Post Restorations rebuilds calipers.

It can be done but you need the special seal washers and ideally new 
bolts and torque them to the set values. Better is to get new or 
properly rebuild ones if you are not accustomed rebuilding callipers. 
They are relatively cheap.
