The hand operated brake bleed pumps work well. I have us them multiple times for brake jobs. Reduce spouse stress also. Can use them for small fluid sampling from the top side, pulling fluids when over filled, priming fuel lines, and checking vacuum lines for leaks.

1.030 is thicker than 1.250. I'd worry about those calipers.
I think you may have missed the decimal place here. 1.030 is smaller than 1.250.

Hello everyone, I went back and replaced the seals in both calipers and there wasn’t hardly any rust inside the calipers. I bolt the wheel on the same binding is happening again. I’m about ready to pull my hair out!!! I got a hold of a little 10mm bolt to align the rotor and even this little bolt causing the rotor to bind before I put the wheel on. I then removed the caliper bracket and everything and just put the rotor on and finally the wheel and everything this turning smooth as glass

I just forgot mention I did replace the front wheel bearing hubs at one time with cheap wheel hubs they have been holding up. If I can recall what brand my old rotors were I believe they were Volvo originals and I did replace the pads at one time with Hella Pagid pads. I never had problem with anything. The rotors are indeed locking when I press the pedal and releasing when I let go
