Post Bleed Wheel Cylinder??

I put in a new master cylinder and some residual valves for front disc and rear drum application. I was able to bleed all wheel cylinder except driver side rear. I am using check valve type bleed screws and never had problems. I tried vaccuum pump and all the tricks that I could think of, it seems odd that other rear cylinder will flow but not left rear??? Any suggestions?? THANKS DAVE SHANK

I'm not sure if I understand your problem. When you say you can't get the wheel to bleed do you mean that you can not get any fluid to pass thru the bleeder valve, or you can't blead the air out of the wheel cylinder?? Please clarify.

REPLY: I cannot get any fluid to come out of bleeder valve. I have the check valve type bleeders and I have tried using system pressure, vacuum pump and both together. Still no fluid flow??????????

This will sound weird!!! Did you have you caliper collasped? If so , and they are still collasped, they will not allow fluid to enter the wheel cylinder. The fix is to shoot air psi at about 40 psi back through the bleeder. This will re-seat the caliper/cylinder, allowing fluid in. Then bleed like normal. Try it.

HEY SLIDER: The brake cylinder that won't bleed is the left rear. The front work fine and had good fluid flow. The right rear also has good fluid flow??? Any suggestions??

Go back to your diverter block. Bleed all of those connections by hand. Then check to make sure you have fluid to the drivers side rear buy pulling the bleeder clear out . Push down on the pedal. If fluid comes out with out the bleeder installed, but will not come out with it in , you have found your problem. Even though new, the self bleeder can noi be opening up. Let us know how it turns out.
