need help with brake master cylinder install

hey everybody

well the master cylinder is on its way out in my YJ. I went by a shop today to get an inspection and although it stops ok, and brake pads are good, the pedal is soft and goes all the way to the floor. bleeding did not fix the problem so looks like its time for a new master cylinder. so options are bench bleed or some kind of bleeding with lines running from bottom of master cylinder back up into reservoir. anybody got any help or write ups to show how this is done

thanks

This is pretty basic video but it will tell you what to do.
When you buy a new master cylinder it will come with a bench bleeder kit and instructions. Just follow them it is not hard at all.
Make sure you bleed all the brakes after you install the new master, starting with the one farthest from the master. Passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front and last drivers front.
