More Bleeding brakes

Attempted to bleed my brakes in my 1976 Camaro clipped Studebaker Transtar. I used a pressure garden sprayer (the small 1 qt. style) and it filled the system and and master cylinder (Corvette with a 7 inch booster) and now just reading about "bleeding the master cylinder". How is this done? I ask because even though I pushed fluid up from the wheels side I still get flat peddal. Did using the little airpressure to bleed cause the fluid to be airiated? This method works on my airplanes using 5606 fluid with out any problems.

Thanks
Jim

Let me get this straight. You forced the fluid from the wheels into the MC to bleed the brakes? Since the whole system is designed to force the fluid in the opposite direction, why would you bleed it that way?

As far as bleeding the MC. They make a kit for that. You take the lines loose from it. Install the fittings from the kit with short hoses. The hoses are routed back into the MC fluid chambers. By pushing the actuator rod several times, the fluid is recirculated, causing the air to be forced out. When the air bubbles quit coming out at the fluid chambers, you are done.

Do you have a pic?

BTW you need to bench bleed the MC or you will never get all the air out...the reason why?

They are tilted to the rear slightly.

Bleeding Master Cyl.

This is my first experince with dual master cylinders and now having thought about it I understand the need to bleed the front and rear pistons. However, there is really no way I can bleed the air from the system in the old fassion pump and hold method?

I will look to see if I have any up to date images to link.

You can bench bleed the MC in the car just disconnect the fittings and have a helper plug the ports with a finger during your pumping. A couple of big old terry cloth towels and some soap and water will soak up the mess.

Then use your method to bleed the wheel cyl's, it should work once the MC is bled properly.

Was More brakes

Sorry I don't have any good pictures, I took these this morning with the sun glaring in and a cheap 640X480 Camera.
Still haven't stripped the front and rear fenders on the outside yet. Over $15K invested and only a sanitary truck not a show truck. Don't have the time or money.

Just like the truck the fat guy in the movie "Hot Rod Willys" drove.
