I have a pair of Kelsey-Hayes 4 piston calipers for a 66 mustang which were taken off of a running car. Can anyone recommend where to send for a professional refurbish?

Pretty easy to rebuild yourself. New pistons and seals is all you need. Otherwise most parts stores have them rebuilt with an exchange.

White Post Restorations can do it for about $350. As Charles said, it's relatively easy to rebuild them. I did mine, but I had a cross-over tube thread strip on one caliper, making that one junk.

I rebuilt Reds calipers by using new pistons and seals from Virginia Mustang Classic. Maybe I just had good luck but it turned out pretty easy.

If they have been sitting for a while they may be corroded beyond a shadetree rebuild. On mine the pistons were pitted so badly I had to use a big pair of pliers to get them out (would not budge using compressed air).

I put in new seals and pistons and they leaked like a sieve. Ended up buying new ones from SSBC.
