Not sure about the WJ brakes, but did you make sure the left was on the left and the right was on the right and that they're not upside down? Do you have any leaks anywhere?

Well what I was referring to was my banjo being upside down, it was causing mine to leek, but I was mistaken about what had actually happened.

I think you're problem is they're still not bled enough. Make sure you're really bleeding the brakes, and I mean really really bleeding the brakes. The first time I bled them I thought it was all good. I didn't think there was any air in there but it turned out there was. You really have to slam the pedal down, and pump the brakes before you open the bleeder valve.

Btw- If you're in Colorado Springs I can come help

Ok so it builds up pressure when I pump it alot

but when i let off the pedel it goes to the floor after a second.

Is my master done?? it makes a noise when you let off the pedel?

Yes you want it to go straight to the floor. Are you doing it with 2 people? I had to have my buddy pump them 3-4 times when the valve was closed, then when I opened it he pushed on the pedal with all his might and more bubbles came out.

Where is the noise coming from when you're letting up? Like a sealing off sorta suction noise?

You should be doing it like this:
Bleeding Car Brakes - How To

Make sure whoever is helping you is pushing on the pedal when you open the bleeder, not pumping.

^ Exactly. Make sure he's pumping them, then slamming that sucker to the floor, then you open the valve

K so the problem is still there
Ive been bleeding them for 3 days now nothing but fluid the pedel is hard till I let off, so if i was driving it i would have to pump them to keep presure.

I replaced the master today well actually my dad did since my broken hand wont let me, no chages.
can the proportioning valve be bad???????
Im really lost any help would be awesome

Is it hard when the engine is off ? and when it running is soft? Then you might want to look at the brake booster. or you have the wrong stroke in the peddle.

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
