Default Front caliper service parts and price list, diy pressure bleeder fab

Howdy all, first off -sorry i didn't get to shoot any pics or vids on the rebuild.. i will make it up to you all...

Well it's been 50'000 ks since i did the calipers before i set off, and they needing doing -yup bottom piston on both siezed...

soooo after doing the rear -new shoes, machined drums, new slave's and oem spring kits they still wouldn't stop the rear wheels- they worked but just! Blew out lines with brake cleaner rebuilt proportional valve and still the same..ok then

That led me to the master cylinder and my thoughts where to service the calipers and service the master cylinder.. master cylinder perfect, seal kit not so -seems all master cylinder kits only come from japan too guys..
Light hone- new seal kit, service calipers and now bitting stearing wheel on stops, the difference it makes..

Sooo here is a parts list for you and where to shop..
Part finder in Dabui- PartSoqu great prices and amazing delivery cost...
Parts fiche- Nissan 7zap.com
And my fav a site, you can add you oem part number and sorce other brand makes and models parts that fit- is Partinfo.org

Ok parts list, not all part numbers start with the VK series as some parts where not available for the nav but using partinfo.org i found a lot of other nissan models that use the same part but have amended part numbers.. i bet you did'nt know nissan navaras share brake and clutch parts with the ultima lol yup the ultima thats f'n priceless..

What i did find out is, that on the end of the brake master cylinder is your model number parts code. This dictates the parts code list your calipers will be!
Ok so part numbers for the d22 VK series calipers are......
4602064J01 Res, Cap x1 "for pressure bleeder set up" $13.10
44139EB30A Slider pin x2 $10.36
441400V700 Slider pin x2. $ 6.50
D1ABMVK125 caliper seal kit x2 $33.83 turns out "one kit does both sides" yes i have a spare seal kit . Oh and a hardwear kit lol yup one kit does both also
41080VK126 Hardware Kit x2 $55.51
41128AW70A Screw Bleeder x2 $6.25
46237A4600 Bango Gaskets x8 $ .23
080444401A Bolt, hex x4 $1.54
410446P01A washer x4 $1.58
Could not get a brake master cylinder kit through these guys, that was Gympie Nissan $160 - another nissan dry entry ;)
Also they where out of pistons but i found a crew in Germany and got a set x4 to my door for under $90 compared to Nis Au at over $400 for four ...
But what i did get was the clutch master cylinder kit, slave kit and hose.. and yes the master cylinder needed doing the slave not so much as i did that with the clutch fit..
M,C kit $14.25
S,C kit $8.55
Hose $19.57

So not including M/C kit from nissan au and pistons from Germany the order came to $328.78 US
Plus get this $ 34.09 shipping... All up $ 442.25AU To my door... yes please!
The booster i purchased turned out to be from a later model so i did'nt fit it, yes i was pissed ..and yes it's available to the d23 crew :)

Now regarding bleeding, i have done peddle bleeds, vacume bleeds "both types" but wanted to try the pressure bleed method.. The best luck i have had with bleeding nissans so far is to vacume bleed with the compressor bleeder set up then finish with a peddle bleed.. To do that though you need a decent compressors and another to hit the peddle, me being one out and on the road not so easy.. so pressure bleeder, heres my dollar diy for ya . Worked fine too. .

The prussure spray bottle i used has a release valve and thats the one you need!
With the prussure gauge, thats just a ebay special screwed in to a small hole made with a soldering iron.. do it whilst it's hot a soft and it will seal like a frogs sphincta...
The alloy and chain is so you can bring the pressure upto 1 bar /15psi, without it the cap will release about 10psi ..
One thing i did was removed the plunger from the spray unit and wash the seals off with brake cleaner and then re lube them with compatable brake grease..
