hydro boost

OK guys needs some help here...
I am about done with installing a hydro boost system in the woodie... and need advice...boost is in.. dual master in.. reservior in... motor isn't ...so power to boost isn't working..
Question is:
Can I still bleed out the brake system so I can move vehicle around and be able to stop it? I need to get the brake pedal installed and may need a basic starting point to know where to set the pedal height, but need it bled first to do so ( I think) Anyone?
Barry.

I dont know why it wouldn't work i guess. It shouldn't really matter. i think i have only had to bleed one and i dont recall anything different from a vac. assist.

Yes, of course you can. Virtually all power brake units are designed so that the brakes still work (without power assist, of course) even if the power booster fails completely.
