Well, if people got their caliper refurbished from familiar places then the core charges aren't somthing you want to pay + shipping. I have $160 core charges associated with my calipers alone. Maybe you'll get lucky though.
Edit: I think a part out is your beat bet.

I have a 92 B13 and I have recently installed the 11" Wilwood kit up front and the Maxima calipers with the 10' rotors from fastbrakes.com in the rear. Everything seemed to go well except the ebrake. I got some ebrake brackets from the junkyard off a Maxima and a J30. The rear right seemed to connect fine but when I went to connect the rear left, it seems the line was too tight to hook the cable on the caliper. I loosened the ebrake cable as far as it would go but it was still a tight fit and I had to have a buddy compress the ebrake spring on the caliper to get it to connect.

As you might expect, the ebrake does not pull up all the way before it locks. Probably only about 25% the travel distance it did before and this is with the cable adjuster nut at the max.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

As a side note, I did notice my right rear (the one that connected fine) is still dragging. It was dragging before with the original caliper too. I am not sure if this is related or a separate issue altogether but I do need get back out there and do some more bleeding once I Altima MC comes in.

I have used the brackets from P10s and 1st gen Altimas with no issues like you are describing. The Max ones need to be from a 93-94 SE. I'm not sure about using J30 ones. Try using some different brackets and see if that solves your problem.

As long as it is a J30 Maxima SE (92-94), not the Infiniti J30. The Infiniti uses a completely different rear brake setup. You will need the Maxima brackets as they are different than the B13 brackets. Look at the 1st post on Page 1 and you will see what I mean.

I have the B15 MC which in this case is Nabco same as my U13 MC, both non-abs.



With the Wilwood 4-pots up front, they work great. The rears need to be toned down just a little bit, as under really hard braking they will sometimes lock briefly. Too much rear bias by a very small amount. If you're not using the car for track or autox, it's unlikely you will care. If you have to brake hard from 100mph before a corner, you might not like what happens.

I plan to find a variable PV solution for the rear, and as this was written up in SCC and I have found it rings very true:

Project Nissan Sentra SE-R - Boxcar Vs. Jellybean said:
Trying to scrub 50mph at the end of the short straight is terrifying. Sadly, the brakes we just installed aren't working as hoped. Initial bite is great, but the harder you push, the more things get numb and spongey. There's a moment of terror, as you wonder if the car will actually slow down, then surprise rotation as you realize the rear brakes have been locked for the last 100 feet and you're turning your new R-compounds square. Blame the pads for this one.
As DC recommended in his article, I am swapping to the Ferodo DS2500's now. I did not like the Hawk HPS; besides lacking in both initial bite and higher temp operation, they threw a nasty rust colored dust I found very hard to get out of the black finish of the Motgei Traklites. Possibly if the front works more effectively I won't see this behavior in the rears. At normal speed for autox, they just lock a touch with can be good or bad, but from higher speeds, both rear wheels will lock if you push down hard, even briefly, that sucks especially if your car is not going perfectly straight down the track.:eek2:

I think there's going to be more to it than just better front pads, the rears have larger swept pad area and they sit further away from the center of the axle, even with crap pads I think they bite a little too much with the U13 MC PV's with stock line pressures:

B13
SE-R (F)782 (R)356-412
U13 MC
non-ABS (F)782 (R)356-412

I'll be looking for a variable PV soon I think, give the new Ferodos a chance first. Pedal feel is excellent as the pads and rotors broke in, DC had to use them day or less after installing them in really hot weather, and was not running a hi-temp brake fluid like Motul.

Oh, and if you use 11.0" Corrado rotors with B13 hubs, you need spacer rings from Fastbrakes. Ask me how I know...you'll want these or your rotors will cinch down not quite centered, you can imagine how that works out:




Dave Coleman did a pretty thorough writeup here and on the rears in the next installment:
Part 9: In The End, You Always Have To Stop - Project Nissan Sentra SE-R - Tech

And Greg V still has B13 plain, slotted, slotted/dimpled, the whole slew of B13 rear rotors already setup for 4x100 and 258mm x 9 mm (or more, that's the plain version). I also really like the lines he carries, they are great, hard to believe anything beefier than Goodbridge, but they are.

SO this is who bought the car from SCC. Nice.:biggthump
Thanks for the additional information that will help clear things up more than what I could provide.

Question I'm planning on upgrading my b13 gts brakes I'm planning on doing maxima front and rear calipers and later on getting the 5 lug to run the rotors also. My question is can I use the maxima Master cylinder? Or what master cylinder can I easily source for a bolt up like the rest of the parts. My car is non abs ad18v on front
