Bleeding Brakes

I have rebuilt & replaced the M/C. I know a lot of air got into the lines. I been bleeding them & I'm still getting A LOT of bubbles out of them. Is it normal after replacing the M/C to get so many & as much bubbles? The fluid is clear now, I can even see the bottom of the M/C reservoir.

I wonder if put something in backwards when putting the M/C back together... Before bleeding, I could not find any leaks around the M/C.

I would get the feeling that the system is suckin' air somewhere.

Bleeding Brakes

oldschool hero,

Yea, I bench bled it and all went well. I'm looking for air leaks, I'm thinking at the fitting going to the bleeder valve.

If you have drum's on back... Make sure you have them with a little drag on them... Are you will be bleeding them for a while... I have seen people bleed all day because the drums where not set right.. The back have to tighten up to get a good pedal...Hope this help's you..
