Everybody loves Ebay Woes :lol: And heres another

Hope V2 caliper - Spares/repairs.
Listed as chipped piston(pictured) and seals leaking.

Very cheap, and easy to replace both pistons and seals.

Dutifully sent off for a pair of pistons and a set of V2 seals. 4 days to arrive.
Removed pistons.
Picked out the first of the old seals and straight away theres a difference, with the new seal being smaller and thinner than the one ive just taken out. Plus the new nipple cover was for the smaller nipple, the V2 is larger, in fact im not even sure thats the original one now.
The bore cap O ring is also a different size and looking at Hope's charts, the only caliper that appears different, using the bigger (A4) piston is the Trials caliper.





Caliper in question -

Flag/return the part as not described to ebay seller and return the spares to Hope?

Thats probably going to be the option on the caliper, but I think its just going to be down to hey ho on the parts.
In contact with the seller now, so we'll see how that turns out.

I could of course be wrong, but the exploded diagrams show all parts being the same code.
Might drop an ask to Hope, see what they say
