[DML] Re: Brake saga........

A very common reason to have this problem is that you did not properly
bleed the master cylinder. It should be "bench bled". This means you
put it in a vise, fill it with brake fluid, use 2 short tubes
connected to the outlet ports and bent around into the resovoir, and
slowly push on the piston until you stop seeing air bubbles coming out
of the tubes. Once you have completly bled the master cylinder, put
caps on the outlet ports and install in the car. Now bleed the brake
system again and you should get fluid out the front brake calipers. It
could also be your bleeding technique. Go to a local auto store and by
a "one man brake bleeder". It is a piece of tubing with a one-way
check valve so you don't pull air back in while you are bleeding the
system. Use a large clear cup with some fluid in it and keep the end
of the brake bleeder in the fluid so it can't pull air and you can see
the bubbles coming out.
