    vacuum bleeding brakes

    Just changed the master cyl on the 57 chevy truck, original single circuit but fitted with remote servo and proportioning valve ,filled master with oil ,when vacuuming from rear furthest rear drum it would not draw hardly any brake fluid out but pedal went hard ?. Any ideas

    Front is 1979 camaro clip with discs ,1979 rear camaro with drums

    You might need to bench bleed the master cylinder
    Money talks; unfortunately mine just says "goodbye"

    when bench bleeding i never route the fluid back to the reservoir as you're only putting air bubbles back in the system. run the pipes into another container of fluid and top up the master as you go.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.
