That sounds like a plan. Can I have access to write the file to this location so that we can update it efficiently?

1966 Porsche 912 rear caliper rebuild
I just rebuilt the calipers on my vintage Porsche. The design of them as well as their condition precluded popping the pistons out with the shop air hose, but a local Porsche expert gave me a tip, and I connected each side of the caliper back to the brake line, using the bleeder screws as plugs, then got in the car and stepped on the brake pedal. Two of the pistons required pushing on the brake pedal with both feet so I know the rest of the system is not going to burst under pressure. The rest of the rebuild was uneventful and now I have new rear brakes. Pelican had the correct parts kits and they were here in 3 days. They seemed expensive, but the cheapest calipers I could find was on ebay and they were $420.00.
