Brake problem

I Just did a bunch of brake work on my aunts van e150. Rotor pads caliper bearings ect. All the brake fluid leaked out while doing the calipers and i bled them 10 times but the pedal goes to floor easily. Tried cracking bleeders adn let sit for a few hours still nothing. Anyone got any ideas? thanks

Re: Brake problem

Gravity bleed them to save some time. This is opening the bleeders with the master cylinder uncapped. Then close bleeders and go into regular bleeding procedure. You may need to re-bleed the master cylinder if you pumped it full of air. No need to bench bleed though, you can have someone pump up the pedal as in regular bleeding, then just crack the lines at the cylinder.
Good Luck

Also, make sure the plastic boot thing[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] is out of there. When we did mine it was left in the MC and I felt like an idiot when we found it.

Re: Brake problem

I got it figured out. Put the pass side caliper on hte driver's side and vece versa. The bleeder was trapping the air in a pocket. Oh well live adn learn thanks for the help.
