Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
So new calipers locked up in 5 or so years?...nuts! I'm assuming you popped the bleeder loose or cracked the line to see if the pistons can be pushed back in...my guess is the pistons rusted in place...what brake fluid did you use? Some brake fluids need changed more than others...I'd guess dot 3 though so that isn't that bad with water...possible rust or goo in the brake lines or even the rubber lines falling apart on the inside jamming up the pistons...I'd probably take the calipers apart and see what's going on just to see if more flushing or whatever is stuck can be found.I've looked for an answer, but all I've found One side seizing not both at the same time any ideas of why this would happen, everything is new as of 2016 except for the Proportioning Valve, any help is greatly appreciated.... 73, Scott
