Question about 1986 Chevrolet K1500
Hi, the brake oil in the font part of the reservoir goes down but I can`t find a leak anywhere. When I push on the brake pedal the brake oil in the back part of the reservoir does like a water fountain but does not over flow.I know that the calipers on the front are starting to stick, could this be the cause or could it be something else.
You brake reservoir is set up backwards so the small front is actually for the rears and the big back res. is for the fronts, so what i would do is put the top on the reservoir like you would be driving have a buddy sit and start truck and pump the brakes while you follow the frame rail your lines are on and look for leaks. If everything is dry look pull your rear tires and drums and see if there is any moisture inside it should be dry so if one or both sides are wet replace wheel cylinder
