Hi Brains Trust
I have just rebuilt the entire brake system of my R12 station wagon doing the following steps:
1: Dismantled entire system drained old fluid, flushed out lines with mentholated spirits and the blew brake lines out with compressed air
2: Honed the rear wheel cylinders and replaced the brake rubbers.
3: Replaced the rear corrector valve.
4: Put new seal kits in the front calipers.
5: Honed master cylinder and rebuilt with new kit, bled master cylinder on the bench, then re-install.
I have used Castrol Bake Fluid Response Super DOT4.
I have managed to get brake fluid through to all the bleed nipples expelling lots of air, but the brake pedal still goes to the floor. Also the brake pressure differential light comes on. So i must still have air in the brake system.
What my question is, what are the tricks and methods others have used to bleed brakes?
