BRAKE DRUM FRONT TO REAR SWAP WORKED PERFECTLY, INCASE YOU HAVE FRONT SPARE DRUMS, GO FOR IT. I GROUND OFF THE RIVIT HEADS THEN BOLTED ON THE HUBS USING RED LOCKTITE. NEW PROBLEM - BENCH BLED NEW DUAL MASTER CYLINDER I GOT FROM AAJ BRAKES, TRYING TO BLEED THE SYSTEM USING A SPECIAL BRAKE PEDAL PUMPING TOOL I GOT ABOUT FORTY TWO YEARS AGO (MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE) AND A ONE MAN VACUUM PUMP I GOT AT NAPA. NOTHING HAPPENS, NO BUILD UP OF PRESSURE PERIOD. SOMETIME THE VACUUM PUMP PULLED A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF FLUID THRU BUT BASICALY NOTHING. I'VE REBUILT MANY BRAKE SYSTEMS AND BLED THEM WITH NO PROBLEMS BUT THIS ONE HAS ME STUMPED. NEW AAJ DISCS IN FRONT, NEW LINES IN FRONT, NEW DUAL MASTER CYLINDER, PROPORTIONING VALVE FOR THE REAR - OPENED ALL THE WAY. ANY ADVISE IS WELCOME. THANKS - DICK KOCH
