[Healeys] Split the Calipers?

For the few dollars it costs, I would send them out to a brake shop to get them rebuilt by someone who has the tools and experience.  They will clean them up ready for paint and replace the seals and pistons as needed.

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

Townsend, Montana
