Default Need help w/F250...

Bought a 97 F250 with a 460 bbf auto trans etc etc.....it is lifted about 8"; not sure what brand lift thought. Needed to bleed the brakes and the darned bleeder screws broke, went and bought oe replacement calipers only to discover once we man-handled the 37's off; we realized that it has an aftermarket brake setup where the caliper is mounted with a bracket that goes all the way around the back of the hub. I personally have not seen nor dealt with a setup like this. so now the truck we thought was going to be a quick fix lets go wheel is now dead in the driveway without brakes. has anyone dealt with this setup before so i know what i need to do to get either new bleeder screws in and/or new calipers on....

I'm sure picture would help. Are there any casting #'s or marks on the caliper to identify who made them?

Front or back brakes? Is it a rear disc conversion?

If you have tourches it may be easier to remove the bleader screw. Its usually better to hit and heat before trying to remove

Looking at the brake caliper, which we have no problem replacing, it looks as if there is an integral bracket that is part of the caliper that encircles the entire axle shaft and sits behind the front brake rotor. So in other words, it looks like the caliper gets slid on the axel shaft first, then the front brake rotor slides on the axel shaft etc. Looks to be an all one-piece deal with the caliper as opposed to two separate parts. Also, it is/was painted red if that makes any difference for identification. There was a casting number of 620158L c1 on the caliper, and there was some other number that was unreadable.

Will try to get pic's later on today. We should have tried to get pics last night when tires were off, but it was 11:00PM when we were working on this.

The red piece that goes around the axle shaft you speak of is nothing but the caliper bracket. The second pic I posted is what you most likely need.

At the top and bottom of the caliper are those pieces of metal that have two flats to them and rubber between them. Drive them out with a punch and hammer. Caliper will come off. You appear to have a 86-94 front D60 from what I can tell from the pics.


Image of the hardware and the slides you need to drive out.

However the calipers dont stretch that year span, 89-94 and 86-88 are different part numbers
