    Testing the tester

    How can you determine the accuracy of your multimeter?

    Mine has a stated accuracy of +/- 0.5%. That means an AGM battery at 12.80v could read anywhere from 12.73v to 12.86v on the multimeter.

    Ok. Thanks for the responses.

    Final question. Which is better to use - DOT3 or DOT4? If I don't know what is in the system now is there a problem mixing them?

    Bleeding brakes

    I have the UFP instructions for bleeding the brakes on a trailer with the A-60 actuator, but they require two people.

    Is there a trick to make it a one person operation?

    Searching the internet turns up just as many opinions that the hubs should be filled as not. I sent a message to Bearing Buddy and asked. I will report what they say.

    Grease in the hubs

    When you reassemble the hubs after packing bearings with grease do you want to try to completely fill the inside of the hub with grease before putting the outer bearing on?

    Nobody seems to do that...

    Well, the slider pins are irrelevant. I took the caliper off and removed the pads. The piston is cocked at an angle and seal around it is damaged.

    I presume this means a new caliper?
