Question about 1991 Ford F150
I tried to bleed the rear brakes after replacing the master cylinder and get very little fluid out of the bleeder screw. My Hanes book states that it is not shadetree mechanic doable
Brakes is brakes, my friend. If you know how to bleed brakes, there is nothing special about it that should not be pointed out in the Hanes book.
Could be the bleeder is partially plugged with muck, either from the outside, or the inside. Unscrew it and make sure it blows clear. If it doesnt, then the wheel cylinder may be full of muck. Same thing probably would happen to calipers, but I've never torn into a caliper before. Probably better to replace than attempt repair.
