That is pretty normal. I think your wheel cylinders are probably stuck.

Does it actually "squirt" out or just bubble up?

Cape Cod Bob Are the rear cylinders old or been sitting awhile ? They may be stuck and need new ones

lwin517 I am using the after market brass one that goes on the side of the MC. It came with the MC , brake booster setup.

poncho62 What are you using for a proportioning valve?

I have basically the same setup....I used the valve from the donor car that I got the clip from (76 Nova)....never had a problem with it

Rear Brakes are not working at all

I am driving a 1956 Chevy PU, 75 Camaro front clip, 10 bolt posi rear from Nova. Disc front brakes, rear drum. Dual master cylinder with aftermarket vac booster. Front brakes work well, rears have little to no stopping power. I adjusted rear shoes and bled wheel cylinders, fluid comes out. Rear wheels will not even stop on jackstands. When I push the brake pedal the fluid comes out of the master cylinder ?? Possible bad MC or proportioning valve ? I'm at a loss at this point.
Thanks
