Some vehicles have a splitter that will shut off fluid to one wheel in case you blow a brake line. It has to be recentered to get fluid to both sides. Boy that brings back memories of my old Triumph TR4!

I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder


Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

Bleed breaks pedal still spongy


On these old manual brake systems without automatic adjusters you have to set the shoe clearance by turning the adjuster on each shoe out so the shoe is very close to the drum. If there is too much clearance between the shoe and drum the shoe will move as far as it can and never touch the drum, this will make a low or no pedal pressure.

sounds to me that your power booster is not holding pressure

I am working on a 1993 f-350 with a 7.3 diesel the truck came to me with the brake pedal going to the floor... the customer had already put 3 new master cylenders on it along with a new brake booster......


I would ask where you got the master cylinders from. Were they new, or rebuilt? If the front brake pads look good and no apparent problems from the calipers, it can only be 2 problems. First, is there a leak somewhere in the system. If you have confirmed that there is none, then the master cylinder is 'bleeding' from front to back. Air wouldn't be a problem as you seem to have bled the brakes well, but the only sure way to know is using a bleeder. They run from a simple hand vacuum device to an air powered device which forces brake fluid thru the system.
Since your 'customer' replaced the booster, make sure the plunger rod is set correctly. Perhaps it is not set at the correct length, in which case you will never get a pedal. Diagnosis for this is a pressure tester to see if any pressure is being generated by the calipers.
Good luck. Hope this helps.

I have re/re the rear brake cylinders,shoes,drums,front rotors,pads,and callipers on my 2000 gmc safari van.i have bled all the brakes. but the drivers front has no pressure or fluid.the other three brakes...


make sure you are bleeding them by doing them as an abs system,do the right rear then the left front,then the left rear then the right front,the opposite wheels are how the system brakes.

Brake problems


randy, i need to know if you hear a sucking noise to know for sure. but, sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. they need to be bled. as well as the master cylinder. the master cylinder should have been bench bled before instlation. start over, start with the wheel furtherst from the master cylender and work your self closest. have some one in the truck to pump the brakes really hard. when they are firm, release the tensinn at the bleeder valve. you can save the fluid with a small hose and a small glass jar at each wheel. check to make sure the master cyl. is always full. after this you will see air in the master cyl. do the same at the bleeder valves there.

Rear brakes uneven breaking as per mot tester


The Chardes have a diagonal split system, so one of the front discs is plumbed to the diagonally located rear drum.

You may need to check the front brakes too and that they have been bleed properly.

Other common cause of uneven braking are:

seized wheel cylinder;
brake hose obstruction or weakend wall;
weak pull off spring on shoe;
uneven drum roundness;
compensator/proportioning valve dicky.
