I have a 1993 24 ft Fleetwood motor with 454 GM motor and about 45,000 miles. The breaks work well for about a block then the pedal gets hard when I apply the brakes. The front pads look good from what I can see.

Brake system failure

I think brake proportional Valve (or Brake pressure regulator) which usually a part of Master cylinder is suspicious.
It regulates pressure to Front and Rear brake line.

If I were you, I try to draw air from Master-cylinder side (not Caliper side).
(Bleed from connector between Master-cylinder and pipe, same way as caliper. someone keep pushing brake then you lose connector then tight. Don't forget to put towel under master cylinder to catch brake fluid)
If air trapped in Proportional valve (pressure regulator), pressure won't relay to rear brake line but only front side.
Front has two separate line from master cylinder (right and left) but rear goes in one line from master cylinder then separate at rear.

Did you noticed both rear brake dragged when it's hot day ?
Because when air get hot, air expand and pushes to caliper and drag but not respond to your pedal.
(calipers don't respond when you push pedal, but it's pushes calipers by itself even you are not pushing pedal, when it's hot because air expand)
Sometimes, seal get old and lose pressure for only one side (front or rear).

if this happened after you did brake job, or you notice your brake was vapor locked (too much brake on hot day then brake fluid boiled), maybe air bleed and whole fluid change may solve.
if you didn't have any unusual activity but it gradually losing pressure to rear, I suspect master cylinder (proportional valve seal).

Sorry I don't have exact e46 master cylinder diagram but basic diagram, hope you can understand what I am talking about.
Picture shows "leak" but this case "Air" in somewhere in pink.
or lose seal on rear piston.

I have a 1972 Ford F-600 with remote mounted hydravac booster. It has good pedal and stops well, but, when you push the brake pedal fluid comes out the vent in master cylinder cap. Any help?

Hi Anonymous:
I've 2 ideas:
1) Is it possible that the master cylinder reservoir has been overfilled?
2) Follow through this with me. As soon as I'm wrong, it's not relevant. Older vehicle....Possibly double acting master cylinder which means there could be 2 separate lines coming out of the master cylinder. One of the seals in the master cylinder may have failed, thus squirting brake fluid inside the master cylinder instead of pressurizing that part of the brake system. The brakes will work, but only for the wheels served by the functioning part.
A test for this could be to put a pressure guage on the outlets. The field test would be to drive at about 10 MPH in a safe area, and STAND on the brake pedal. If only two of the brakes lock up, you. will need to replace the master cylinder.

Front brakes gradually get tighter until they lock up.

do you have to release the pressure from the brake line from the bleeder? I had this problem with a old motorhome,... turns out some one used something else besides brake fluid in the master cylinder, brake fluid wont expand under heat, tranny fluid or oil, etc it expands i n the brake system,and the pressure pushes the pads to the rotor and there for nowhere to go. Try flushing the whole brake line master cylinder etc....and put new Brake Fluid throughout. Bet that works. :::?"""""???

Who is supplying the master cylinders? Are they new or manufactured? If they are not new get a new one not a manufactured one. Use quality parts from Bendix and others, never use no name replacements. The best price is not the best deal is the part is junk.

If the brake pedal sinks with light foot pressure but is hard when you stab the pedal the cause is the brake fluid bypassing inside the Master cylinder. Replace and bleed or rebuild the Cylinder.

    • Recall Announced MARCH 13 2006
    • NHTSA Reference #06E022000
    • Number Affected 7,440
    Summary: Certain aftermarket brake hydraulic master cylinders sold as replacement brake cylinders for certain Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Jeep passenger vehicles. These brake cylinders were sold under the brand names of Napa, raybestos, aimco, ac delco, Carquest, bendix, and wagner. Only products that were manufactured from July 27, 2005 through January 17, 2006 (date codes 0529 through 0602) are subject to this recall. When subject to very cold temperatures, an internal seal in the master cylinder could lose flexibility and may cause brake fluid to leak.
    Consequence: Loss of brake fluid can lead to a decrease in brake line pressure and an increase in stopping distance, which can result in a vehicle crash.
    Fix: Affinia (brake parts, Inc.) will replace the subject brake hydraulic master cylinders free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2006. Owners can contact affina group customer service at 1-800-323-0354.

That sounds to me like a problem with the power brake booster unit or the master cylinder, the wrong master cylinder could be installed, and this could happen if the plunger rod from the vacuum booster unit is too long for the opening on the rear of the master cylinder, that is why any time that a master cylinder is replaced to be certain that the depth of the plunger valve in the rear of the master cylinder is the same as the original part that was removed. Also the brake booster itself could be malfunctioning and activating the brakes with just the engine vacuum.

Is the Emergency brake adjusted? You can also have a bad Master Cylinder or porportionating valve. If the Master cylinder is using the rear brakes to stop instead of the front discs, this can happen.

If the Master cylinder is working the valve I mentioned could be directing the pressure to the rear brakes. This would especially be true if only1 rear brake is warping. You can pressure test the lines, and you may be able to get a tool loan from Autozone or Oreillys.

Or if you decide its cheaper to just replace the Master cylinder and valving you can do that instead of testing. You said ALL parts are new. That would mean the wheel cylinder is also new, if not replace it.

Master Cylinder made by LUCAS

brake pads from other manufacturers ( Ferrodo and bendix) will fit
modern master cylinders have a special finish in the cylinder so reconditioning and new rubbers are generally not advisable
the best fix is a new replacement master cylinder and they are available at any professional brake and clutch shop
