Question about 1970 Ford Cortina
I replaced the brake master cylinder, after bleeding the brakes i adjusted the rear brake shoes and the brakes were fine ... on a test drive the pedal would go down to the floor but only every now and again .. other than that the brakes are fine .. advice?
Air in the line. Could be a faulty caliper, to test a caliper clamp off the line with vice grip on each tyre and test pedal. If you get good pedal when a line is clamped you have found your problem caliper.

yep this is a two man job, onece you get air in the lines is better to do all four, my has abs and i was able to do it, but next time don't take anylines lose just turn the piston clockwise and you should be able to push it in.

if the booster is bad the pedal would be hard sounds like the e-brake is stuck take off the drums and make sure the arms are all the way back then did you adjust the rear brakes after changing the shoes

Perfect well at this point i would say that tha abs valve is bypassing fluid. If you can un hook the line that comes into the abs valve and plug it and try and bleed the system where you cap the line going into the abs valve. If you get a good pedal after pluging the line going into the abs valve this tells me that the abs valve is bypassing fluid give it a try i have ran into this a few time and the abs valve has been bad. Also can you rate this sluton also i do hits on my own free time thanks good luck
