Re: Freeing Calipers
Personally I wouldn't like to take the chance using diesel.
Why not soak it in brake fluid - the old mechanics used it instead of releasing fluid - plus if it does get to the seals...............
Brake fluid is good at penetrating small gaps - after all it gets into the pores of your skin. Position the caliper horizontally make a small well using plasticine or such fill the well and let it sit.
