bleeding brakes 29 model a hot rod

I did a brake job on my coupe I bleed all four wheels about three times
cause when I hit the brake pedal it look all right but when I pump the pedal 2 more times it would be up where it should be I had a lot of air in the front left wheel I had to do it like 10 times be for I did not see any air in the line
So I am thinking that I will have to bleed the master I think that is why I have to pump the pedal to get a good pedal The master is not a new one
so it had fluid in it but maybe the gut I got the car from did not bleed the master when build the car

You need to tell us what type of brake system you have? is it drum all around or maybe disk all around or maybe a mix of drum and disk. In the case of drum brakes you need to make sure the brake shoes are adjusted up to snuff. get them adjusted properly then bleed them and drive them..

I have found Reverse Bleeding works well when you are having problems. This is one thread I will post another when I find it. I start with a drained system, then work from the furthest brake from the master pressuring till you have some fluid in the master cylinder then carry on the same procedure on each brake till the the nearest. Just have to keep an eye on the master cylinder draining off some fluid to stop it over flowing.
