Well, I finally got the Zuk moving under its own power today. Still needs shocks all the way around, but everything else is installed, adjusted and ready to go. First time I've got to drive it since I left home early last year. Here's the problem. I had to replace the rear metal brakeline at the axle, the one that connects to both sides. I have an 88.5 with the one rear rubber hose setup. I hadn't bled the brakes since I had put the extended brakelines on, I had to leave in the middle of my buildup and didn't have time. I managed to bleed the rear, and then moved to do the front but the both bleeders are stuck and they'll just round off rather than open if I try to turn them. I'm using line wrenches like I'm supposed to. With the motor off, I can pump the pedal several times and have a good firm pedal and see the fluid going down in the MC reservoir. After about 10 seconds, I see the fluid coming back into the reservoir and no pedal again. Also hear a faint air noise around the sensor cap in the middle of the reservoir cover. After this, I have no pedal pressure again. When I drove it, if you pumped the pedal about 5 times you could get the brakes to work, but barely. Any suggestions? I need to rein in all this raw power [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] but I'm stumped. Thanks for the help y'all.
