    Default Piston Wind-Back Tool...

    Can anyone who has the piston-winding tool for the rear brakes, let me know please what the distance is between the two lugs that fit into the holes in the piston face? Preferably the distance from the centre of one lug to the centre of the other one, to give it more accuracy. Much appreciated.

    Not being deliberately thick, but how on earth do you read 20mm on that scale? 20mm seems to be a random point inside the 'window'!

    It's not very clear in the picture, but there's marks on the oval "window", along the bottom. You can just make out the line under the 2.
