OK, I don't have enough breaks to safely test drive. Car has new break master but do I start from the closest caliper or the farthest ? Its a 85 accord fed 1.8 AT base mod.


Farthest to closest. Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installation? If not you will take forever to bleed the regular way. There are YouTube videos on how to do this.

How do I change the brake master cylinder on a 2000 dodge dakota rt 360 magnum 5.9l v8 mopar


disconnect the front and rear brake lines, undo bolts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster. Bench bleed the new master and reconnect to booster and reconnect lines. Be very careful when undoing the lines from the master cyclinder as you do not want to damage them. Soak with WD-40 before loosening. Once everything is back in place you will need to bleed all calipers and/or wheel cylinders. Again soak the bleeder screws beforehand with WD-40 as they break off easily.

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.

Brake pedal to floor have replaced brake pads and master cylinder


Did the pedal go to the floor beforehand? Was the master cylinder leaking, and did you bleed it properly? If the master cylinder was not leaking, check your brake lines going to the rear wheels.

1996 chevy blazer 4wd break petal goes all the way to the floor breaks r good new master cylinder blead all braks 10 times any sugesstins? help!!!


I know there is ABS in that vehicle, you might still have air in the ABS unit, you will need to get a manual that shows you the correct procedure to bleed the brakes. Master installed u need to start the bleed on the bench, then move to the ABS unit then to the individual calipers and/or wheel cylinders if equipped. I think there is a certain way to do it to avoid incorrect bleeding.

But i have also seen bad master cylinders brand new in the box.

Good Luck.

I seem to have a problem with my hydro breaking system.Found front worn out while the rear shoes were covered with oil and had not been working for some time.After replacing calipers,rotors,shoes and wheel...


ALL YOU CAN DO IS FLUSH WITH CLEAN FLUID PUMP AND BLEED NOTE: ALWAYS START FROM THE FURTHEST WHEEL FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER AND WORK YOU WAY BACK. SOME TIMES YOU CAN OPEN THE LINES WITH COMPRESSED AIR WHEN YOU DISCONNECT ALL THE LINES FROM THE CYLINDERS

I need to change the master cylinder in my fj62 landcruiser and I am not sure how to do it. Looking for help please.


If you want to change break master cylinder,first remove two break pipes then remove four nuts which is holding master cylinder to breake booster.careful breake fluid from the car body and your self.

put the new breake master cylinder tight four nuts, before you fit the braeke pipes get some body who can hold breake bedel down put the breake fluide tell him to pump breake bedel when the brake master take fluid hold your fingers where you want to fit brake pipes when you feel more pressure which is pushing your finger tell him to hold the bedel down while you tighting the pipes.
you dont need to bleade the wheels. it is ready.
the ather thing when you remove the breake master put the new one then fit the brake pipes fil with the breake fluide then bump so you must bleade all wheels
