Re: Brake questions..hopefully last one
You didn't change the master cylinder did you? I mean, the way I read your post, it just went dry, but you didn't remove it. I'm assuming that the master cylinder and booster are stock set up, and that nothing has changed in that.
I'm not sure what you are talking about your proportioning valve. That should be mounted on your frame, I don't know why you'd remove/change that.
When you are bleeding the system, are you hearing/seeing any air coming out? When you are bleeding the brakes make sure you bleed the brake farthest away from the master cylinder than work your way back to the master cylinder.
Are your rear shoes adjusted all the way out? If you have them set too far in, the wheel cylinder will function, but not have enough travel to allow the brakes to really do you any good. That will cause you pedal to be low too...
