Here's my situation...
I haven't got the motor running yet. Keep that in mind for the end of this message.
New brakes, discs, on all four corners
Frame mounted master cylinder w/booster, remote reservoirs
All new lines, proportioning valve on the rear circuit
Residual valves on front and rear circuits
I've tested all valves to be sure they are installed correctly. I bench bled the master cylinder and tested it for good pressure and no bypass leaks
I've been trying to bleed the system to get a good high pedal but no luck. I'm using DOT 3 synthetic fluid. I know that synthetic usually gives a soft pedal but this soft????
I start bleeding and the farthest point both front and rear.
After bleeding the system over and over again I get a good shot of fluid, no air, from each caliper but I can never get the pedal higher than an inch or two off the floor. After bleeding, the first pedal pump usually hits the floor then I can pump it up to the inch or two height.
Once I get the motor running, will the vacuum booster help raise the pedal higher?
Any suggestions will help in my frustration. Thanx in advance.
