    Breaks

    So I put in New master cylinder, bench bleed, bled breaks, no air in system, new booster, new calipers, new pads, no breaks. No leaks.
    Any guesses?

    Re: Breaks

    What's the problem you're seeing? Is it just spongy brakes?

    When I have brake problems, it's almost always air in the line. I've found that it works well to get a length of clear tubing - put my wrench on the bleeder, then slip the tube over the tip. That lets you see the air coming out, and makes it less likely that air will be drawn back in.

    Re: Breaks

    Agree with Terry on this. Dump that tube end into an empty plastic bottle with a small loop in the bottle and you have a one man bleeding system.


    Any vac leak or sign of faulty booster?

    Please merge the threads.. It's getting confusing what happened when.

    Sorry guys I don't know how to merge the threes. I fixed it. Problem ended up being that I was bleeder down on front calipers instead of bleeder up. Works great now.
