On the race truck I messed with it and messed with it and messed with it and couldn't for the life of me get pedal when i put the new setup in it. Then my uncle comes over. Has me grab the engine hoist and I lift the rear of the truck a few feet into the air. We then bleed the brakes and they've worked perfectly ever since. The way the master sat it allowed for an air pocket to be trapped up past the line so with it sitting at ride it was not able to ever bleed out. Now granted, I didn't bench bleed the master cylinders when I did it.

Depending how your master is mounted, eventhough you bench bled is it possible something similar could be happening?

Anybody have any idea how to get spray foam packing material residue off a texture powder coated part?

Btw, Or-Fab's customer service sucks. Not only are these parts one that were missing in the original packaging, they are the wrong powder coat and are now all jacked up because they didn't wrap them properly before shipping them. On top of that i had to wait almost three weeks for the missing parts. That will be the last Or-Fab product I buy.

LOL, I've been cruising the forums at work to much myself as well due to boredom

I found a late 80's XJ that runs and drives with the 6 cylinder, auto trany, and 4x4 for only $600. My friend needs a car so I'm going to let them have it for the $600 or keep it if they decide to pass on it. I've been contemplating buying an XJ to build a stock class Jeep Speed race truck. Worst case scenario is they don't want it, I decide not to build a race truck, and I just fix it up and flip it for a profit.

What did you buy?

Also sorry for posting so much lately I've been getting pretty sick of my job.
The guy just texted me and said he is going to the DMV to get a bill of sale. What is that for? He said he has a clean title. Is it something in addition to the title that I'll need?

the powdercoat is supposed to be resistant to solvents so you should be able to use lighter fluid or gas to melt the foam off.

So, this guy has 12 previous felony convictions, and is still not in prison for life?! WTF? Does he actually have to kill someone?!

Same issue. Pedal is spongy but doesn't go all the way to the floor without vacuum. With vacuum the pedal goes to the floor and the truck doesn't stop well.

I also have a pedal that is slow to return so I suspect a faulty booster. However the brakes should work regardless of that.

I will be re-bench bleeding the MC tonight or tomorrow (tonight is the night of fire at the bullring) and if that doesn't fix it, it's gotta be a bad MC and or booster.
I personally have never had a lot of success with gravity bleeding, I have always used pressure bleeding (one person working the pedal, one working the wrench) and found success where the gravity bleed didn’t work. Not saying that this is your issue, but something to consider next time you decide to bleed it. BTW - I would be happy to help with this if you need.

Iirc the DMV does not require a bill of sale. Just a properly filled out title. I have always done a bill of sale to cover my butt

Bill of sale is mostly for personal records. Title signed off with no lien shown on it is all that should be needed.

Marn, do do you have disc all around?


Just some good notes I took from a brake master:

Quit pumping the pedal before you open the bleed screw.

Keep the reservoir full.

Open bleeder, have helper push the pedal to floor with authority and hold it there until you close the bleed screw.

Have helper let the pedal up slowly or about a 3 count from bottom to top.

Repeat until there is no more air present in the clear plastic tube you have from the bleed screw into your clear drain bottle.

^^^^ Yup, that's exactly how I grew up doing it. I actually never pump the pedal between close and open on the bleeder either. I have bleeder opened, press down pedal, hold till bleeder is closed, slowly let up, repeat... I never do the pump thing that a lot of people do. Typically have never had an issue with it either.

My dad and I would do the same. It usually ended with each of us yelling and swearing at each other. With the occasional tool thrown. It always worked though.

Well, regardless, there has been zero air bubbles in the lines.

If somebody wants to come over tomorrow and school me on it, i'd be happy to do all the hard work and use you as my helper.

Regardless of the soft pedal, i'm pretty sure i have a booster problem if not a mc problem too. Apparently getting a bum booster or MC from A1 Cardone isnt uncommon. ****ty thing is I have to remove the MC and the booster and mail them back to rock auto before they will sent a replacement, so i cannot tell if it's just the booster or the MC too. I guess i could go buy a MC for 17 bucks and throw that on the booster and mail it back, or bleed it and install it on my booster and see if that makes a difference, to eliminate the MC as the problem?

I dont really know what to do.
