We now have a disassembled caliper. Clean parts with whatever suits you. Once the grime is removed, I tend to use steel wool to clean off light oxidation from the washers and other parts.

Using a small dab of grease...

...lightly coat the wear surfaces with a light coat of grease.

Position the washer on the caliper arms, the grease will hold them in place.

Use the awl to center the washers...

...and reinsert the main pivot assembly.

Reassemble in reverse order, putting grease on all wear surfaces.

Tighten everything down and admire your handiwork.
