    crude yes but workable in an emergency,however will likely tear your rubber dust cover as you get close to it completely closed have seized or jammed piston in future due to this torn rubber DEFINATELY i speak from experience the next brake change i invested in a rewind tool i learnt from my mistake

    This is the one I got. I'd forgot it cost so much - I guess this is more that you are looking to pay. Looks to be about £40 on various websites now.

    I'm guessing the tool you have is the correct one, it's the disk with the "bumps" on it that is wrong, probably set up for Ford or something. All you need is the correct adaptor - about a tenner on ebay.
