Re: Trouble Bleeding Brakes on \'85 F150 2WD
I have Russell one-way bleeder valves in the rear wheel cylinders and front calipers. I start at the right rear, pump the pedal until the fluid in the master cylinder is low, fill the master and repeat. I do this several times then move to the other rear wheel. Then I go to the right front, then the left front. The brakes feel fine when I'm done, then after about 100 miles they go weak, spongy and grabby. I'm not losing any fluid. I may have damaged the right rear cylinder when I changed out the park brake cable. That's when this problem started.
