    Um - maybe I wasn't clear enough.

    • I bought reproduction calipers which appear to be from A1 Cardone as a stopgap solution while my original Bendix 4 piston calipers (from my 1968 Charger R/T) will be sent out to be rebuilt (cleaned up, sleeved and rebuilt with new pistons and seals)

    • I am having issues installing the reproduction calipers

    • I am seeking out a caliper restorer that has familiarity with Bendix 4 piston calipers and with which others have had good experiences

    • I have no intention of sending my original calipers to A1 Cardone.

    Update of issues and plan of attack:

    • Reproduction (stopgap) caliper:
      • Bolts:
        • will be using bolts from original calipers while custom fasteners are being made
      • Secondary chamfer in tapped hole that initially housed bleeder
        • having hole in caliper for LH side remachined to proper specs for bubble flare

    • Restoration of original Bendix calipers:
      • Getting quotes (cost and timing) from Goldline, Calipers Online and White Post

    So does that company you work for carry parts for them or are you just blowing smoke? Can not tell from the site you sent us to.
