HEY TURBO: I had this same problem and it took FOREVER to find. Problem was MC is cast iron with rough threads. Brass bushing fittings were not making good seal against MC threads, EVEN THOUGH they were tightly bottomed out. I had to use teflon tape and sealant to finally get tight seal. What was happening was when pedal would pull back up it was sucking in small amount of air around fitting. You might try putting soap suds around brass fitting and see if you are getting any air movement. HOPE THIS HELPS..DAVE
