TRF carries them, but I don't have the number handy.

Looks like the Moss number is 583-820.

TRF didnt have them.British parts northwest did but they looked different.Mine are solid with a 1/8th hole in the center on an angle.Theres are just an open o ring,same thing only different shape?BPN said the bolts are meant to expand from factory and I may have a problem with leaking,should I be concerned?

Jonny, I told you I would look at work tomorrow. Don't buy anything until I see what I've got. You're starting to panic. :crazyeyes: Besides you really should change both of them. BTW, we split calipers all the time at work and don't have any problems.

Edit: You need pistons anyway, so if I can't get something suitable at work, you can then get the O-rings with the pistons and save on shipping.

When your making a post, the are a bunch of icons at the top. Click on the first one, and you will get a whole assortment pop up. Just click on the one you want. The second one is for inserting a web link. You can play with the rest of them and see what they do.

Sounds like Martx has this covered, but remember the o-rings are square shouldered(?) and not rounded.

Just like the piston seals...Although the early Corvette calipers have round section O-rings between the halves.
