P16 crossover o-ring orientation

Recommended Posts

I'm sure I saw a thread here once, but I can't find it now.  So, as the title suggests, on a P16 caliper with a pocket on one side and a flat on the other, does it matter the orientation of the square crossover o-ring?  It's flat on one side and grooved on the other.

 

thanks

If it's an o ring I would have thought it's the same both sides completely round no flat on one side. It's a long while since I refurbed my calopers but if it's any help I just fitted the new  o ring that came in the refurb kit without thinking of which way round it goes but I did apply a light coating of loctite flange sealant all over one face of the calliper before reassembly of calliper. Had no issues whatsoever.

As above, it should just be a standard shaped O-ring. If it's squared off, it'll be from age of being in place.

nope.  brand new from a brake specialist.  square edged, one side flat and one side grooved.

I'll ask the guy I bought it off - but the Loctite sounds a good idea.
