Hmmm. The caliper was quite clean after I removed all the gunk, but there was a little scoring on one of the pistons. Although I polished it some, maybe that is the problem. I can still get a new caliper housing unit, and maybe even some pistons. I guess that will be my next step if the MC rebuild dosn't do it. Thanks, Martin!
