lets talk brake trouble

History, S-10 conversion, 12 years ago. Now i am putting it back to use.

Now the trouble. soft peddle, no fluid to rear, leaking rear cylinders, and so on.

What I have done.

Replaced all lines (front and rear)
calipers and rear cylinders pads and shoes
master cylinder and valve
used power boost (because I had a soft peddle after changing calipers and rear cylinders) now i have a hard peddle

The new trouble is now, no good pressure at brakes.

checked the boost by removing vacuum, slight press on peddle and feel small movement on start-up.

Any thoughts?

Now wait a Min.....You said ...(no fluid to rear, leaking rear cylinders)..

How do you know they are leaking if you said No fluid to rear...

Did you re-bleed everything (right) ????

From CPP's "Brake Troubleshooting Guide":

Rock Hard Pedal
Insufficient Vacuum = Check vacuum pressure
Blocked Vacuum Check Valve = Test Power Brake Booster
Bad power booster = Test Power Brake Booster
Frozen Wheel Cylinder = Replace caliper
Binding Pedal linkage = Inspect pedal assembly
