GEN 1 brake issue
Posted 25 January 2004 - 01:27 AM
I REPLACED these items:
calipers/rotors/pads/mastercylinder/rear wheel wheel cylinders/adjusters/shoes/drums. I blead at least 1 gal of fluid, (blead master),adjusted the EMR brake and I still have just a marginal pedal! It's higher and firm with EMR brake all the way on, but better than 1/2 way down and "kinda" mushy without. It doesn't " sink though and the car stops ok.
Could air be still stuck somewhere? I get the feeling that it's air, but my god....I blead in proper sequence forever! Does the proportioning valve ever fail? I even put the old calipers back on and still the same pedal!!!
This has me totally frustrated!!

Is the rod for the M/cyl threaded by any chance? If it is you can take some play out with it. But be careful with that one as you can force dragging brakes too.
