    A tip worth trying is one I had years ago on a Wolseley 16/60 auto I had. Pump the brake pedal untill the pedal is hard then wedge a piece of wood between the pedal and a piece of wood wedged against the front of the drivers seat and leave it like that overnight. Any bubbles of air will probably find their way up through the master cylinder. This has worked a few times for me, might not always work but worth a try.

    It is possible that the master cylinder is dragging air in. Are there any signs of leaks? You'll have to look under the dash to see where the brake pedal goes to the master cylinder if I remember correctly. I don't know what you've done to your brakes but it might be worth changing all the flexi hoses while you're at it. Better safe than sorry and all that stuff

    Just noticed when pumping brake pedal there are air bubbles in the brake cylinder. Does this mean it needs replacing, thanks

    clamp all the brake hoses off, and if the pedal is still soft you know its a dodgy master.but if the pedal is still hard, then remove one clamp at a time to determine what brake is giving you a problem.

    I've bled the brakes 2/3 times and can't get a decent solid brake, the shoes are adjusted correctly. Any tips please!?
