1985 chevy c10 1/2 ton

I just did my brakes on my truck and started the bleeding process when i noticed i wasnt getting any fluid to my rear drums. i checked my master cylinder and losened the lines and found fluid leaving the master but not reaching the rear.

i had people say its my proportion valve and needs to be reset. I just wanted to know if antbody here knew how to do that? Its located underneath my core support

Unhook the line at each end and blow some air through it

try the button on the valve see if you can move or center it maybe

it could be stuck but its not usual or common

sometimes its a real pita to get lines to start bleeding if they are totally full of air

let it run out over a few hours with bleeders open and cap off the mc

to get it going

if you can get a helper then have them push pedal down and keep down while you loosen up one bleeder and remove it

then put a finger tip over the bleeder hole and let the helper careully press and depress the pedal over and over until you get air and fluid out

make sure the mc is bled out properly

if not then it wont work anyways

i bleed them on the vehicle

i remove line and put finger over the port hole and let someoen push pedal down

put rag over it all it will spray mess

cover with finger tip tight when pedal comes back up

so you dont suck in air

this will bleed the mc good so it will bleed the lines out

if ou dont run the mc dry and you dont allow air to suck into a bleeder port then you will get it

also if you dont have a leak or bad line somewhere

wont bleed then either

shoot some penetrating oil on it and put a stiffer spring in, check for anything grabbing the throttle as it returns.
