Question about Jeep CJ5
Did u bleed the master cylinder before u installed it? If not, you'll have to also bleed the rear brakes. starting w/ the bleeder the farthest away, to next greatest distance,etc til u get to the closest bleeder.
If u did bleed the master cyl. before installation, I'm wondering if u did the following:
have someone pump the brakes (3 times, don't mash the pedal to the floor, just gentle push no more than half way down 3 times, while holding pedal half way down 3rd pump, open bleeder, when fluid or air slows coming out, close bleeder, and repeat, until only clean fluid flows. And of course, don't let the fluid get too low in the master cyl, or you will **** in air and have to start all over. Let me know how you do. countrycurt0
