Question about Cars & Trucks
Bleed @ farthest wheel R/r then L/r then R/f and L/f .No air left in system, but I don't have a pedal at all. Need help.
A couple of things I can think of:
Did you fill the master cyl. and have someone pump the brake and hold it until you opened the bleeder and not take there foot off until you closed the bleeder. Not trying to be smart just want to make sure of the procedure.
You may need to use a pressure bleeder to force the air out of the system and did you bleed the sys. at the master cyl.. In addition, if you are doing this manually you may have to go around more than once to clear air from the sys. Hope this helps.

Hello Rusty Mackey,
Jerry Ross has given good advice.
I would NOT recommend trying GRAVITY...
Stick with the 2 person tried & true...!!
Make sure the pedal is being pressed and HELD
until the BLEED VALVE is fully CLOSED.
Dual master cylinder brake systems will begin
to give you pedal from either front or rear...
ELSE you have a double FAILURE of your
MASTER CYLINDER (NOT credible)...
I suspect your process/helper...
Regardless... don't get careless with the BRAKE-FLUID
around your painted surfaces.
