    A vacuum pump bleeder and bleeding on each caliper always worked for me.

    The rear calipers wont bleed unless there is weight on the trailing arm ,so the proportioning valve operated by movement of the suspension is open ,allowing fluid flow .pugs

    This is the crux of it! I don't think most here would have encountered the Bendix type ABS. It seems quite similar to that used on some newer 4WD cars though...

    All ABS are fail safe designs, worst case you disconnect the battery, safety wire the limiting valve temporarily open and start bleeding from the wheels up.

    In Australia the early Bendix cars were all recalled and the cars fitted with Bosch ABS under warranty.

    Bleed, bleed, bleed again. Does it have a limiting valve on the rears?
