Brake Caliper

Post by carterdj on Thu May 21, 2015 8:02 pm

Ok, I may have messed up.  Have installed new Wilwood calipers on my car and may have over tightened the inlet fitting (cause it kept leaking)  I have put some thread lock on the bolt (right angle type deal) and it stops feeling loose but I am just not convinced as its the brakes, and I would hate for it to fail when I am using it!!!!! any ideas what I can do? JB Weld it in? Try and get the next bolt size up (currently 7/16-10)
