Re: Brakes won't bleed
So the bore in the master cylinder was very nice, no problem, the circlip holing the piston was a little rusty under the boot, but that was replaced, the kit is identical to the piston that came out, and I put the seals on the the same way. Now what I am finding strange is that the fluid in the reservoir does not really want to go down, if I take off the banjo bolt to the master cylinger and put my finger over the end, it pumps pressure nicely, but then sucks back a little which is what I would expect not to happen. I thought the master cylinder was more like a weak one way valve that would pump fluid out, then on the return would take fluid from the reservoir. The thing is I don't know how that is done, is there some kind of tiny hole that may have become blocked in some way?
I never did take the reservoir off the master cylinder itself, as I didn't expect it to be a problem, I just don't want to introduce any more problems.
