Hi, no the pins are still "shiny" and I put some copper grease on them when I re-assembled the brakes, so appear to be o.k. I thought it funny that both brakes are binding? which kind of suggested that something that controls both brakes is faulty> but couldn't figure out what that could be - servo? some valve or master cylinder??
