RE: master cylinder woes



Manual brakes or power?  They gave me the 15/16” in the kit for manual – way too spongy for manual brakes.  Ended up with 1 1/32” but you can find them all the way up to 1 1/8” in a stock type cast iron mc.

 

Are your calipers swapped side to side maybe?  The bleeder should be on the high side.

 

Good trouble shooting info here:

What diameter bore mc?  I had to go larger than 15/16” to get good peddle with front disc conversion.

Hi fellas

here's my problem

62' Plymouth Valiant modified

replaced the front drum brakes with a disc kit (The Ram man)

I have added a line-lok

long story short I have now (after many attempts at bleeding )

isolated the front brake reservoir directly to a tee and the front brake lines only

still no pressure and no leaks (this leads me to a faulty master cylinder this will be the 3r)

i can pump the pedal about ten times to get some feel but when i release it and re-try the pedal goes all the way to the floor

any thoughts / input appreciated

Enzo
