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

Do not use too much pressure trying to pressure bleed the mater
cylinder. The resovoir is plastic and the seals are not meant for a
lot of pressure in that manner. A better method is to presure bleed
from the calipers to the master cylinder but you shouldn't have to do
it that way. I still have to believe something is not right with your
technique. Another possability is the pushrod from the vacuum booster
is way out of adjustment and you are not "compensating" properly when
the pedal is released. Disconnect the master cylinder from the booster
by removing the 2 nuts leaving the lines connected. Get a screwdriver
and push the piston in the master cylinder to bleed the system. Once
bled replace the master cylinder back on the booster and try to bleed
again. If you can't, you must readjust the pushrod usually by
shortening it.
