Getting paronoid about brakes … as Steve & Martin will know [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]When I first put in RS14, braided lines and SRF I had a solid pedal … now its all spongy [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/frown.gif[/image] - yep checked for air, replaced fluid etc but still squashy pedal - actually just like it was before I changed 'em …Any one "been there done that " ?
Master cylinder seal, perhaps?
RobThat was one of my thoughts as well - I seem to recall having read somewhere about MS seals getting damaged when trying to bleed the system …
Andy,The MS seal shouldn’t get damaged if you pressure bleed the system, its only when you use the “old fashioned way” of pressing the brake pedal to floor.
PhilDamn - thats what I thought I read… and guess how I did it !! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image] - My other half was well happy about it as well - not.Still now been given a vacumn device from my friendly Britool man - but its got “the ultimate hand tool” written on the box ( really it has ) - so I hope its for brakes [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image]
PhilHow does the MS seal get damaged if bleeding the brake system using the brake pedal?? [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/confused.gif[/image]
