  1. I started to reassemble the rear calipers on an 83 Seville and noticed that the piston seals were a little too big. I thought the kit may have been defective, but I compared them to the ones I removed and they were the same size. Has anybody run into this before? On every caliper I've rebuilt in the past the seals fit the pistons exactly with no slop. I was able to insert the seal into the groove with a little more difficulty than usual. The piston can also be inserted into the bore but it seems too tight. I'm concerned the piston won't retract enough from the rotor to float as its supposed to. Thanks! Larry
