Ok I tried bench bleeding my mc again, got a few air bubbles out. Then I put it back together, and had pressure on the second push of the pedle. then about 10 seconds later. The same trouble. Does this mean the mc is bad? I am so lost, never had this much trouble with brakes before.
Any help would be great.

Ok, I will go way out there and ask you to check the front disk pads. I remember having your trouble once when the glue holding the pads to the metal backing had let go and the pad warped from heat into a c shape so the first pump pushed it flat to the rotor and the second pump held it. Then once the pedal was let off, it curled up again pushing the piston back into the caliper.

I now use the riveted on kind of pads.

Other than that maybe one more bench bleed? Mine sure took a long time to stay hard at the 1/8".

Alright, I bench bled once again. No luck. I looked at the front pads, and they appeared to be ok. I am about an evening away from taking it to a brake shop. And I am not happy about that.

Could it be the MC is yet again bad, it is a refurb??????????????
HELP

yes it could be another bad one.

How well did the wheels bleed after you bench bled the MC again? Any more air bubbles?

I got no more air out of the bleeders, after bench bled. I used about a half a quart bleeding at the wheels. I guess I will try another MC..

I would be pulling off the rear drums first and look close at the shoes. Same deal, just look for a crack between the shoe and the metal backing. That is the same as the front pads, all it takes is a crack between the friction material and the metal backing to allow the pistons to be pushed back slightly making your pedal act like that. The friction material curls up slightly when not anchored. The last ones that went bad on me still had over 3/4 of the pads left on them, they were basically still new and water/humidity got to the glue. I had a helper push on the pedal and I could see the crack in the front pads compressing slightly. I was looking for bad flex lines, expecting to see a bubble under pressure or something. Just about drove me nuts trying to get a good pedal.

Alright, I decided to get yet another MC, and since that was off, I got some new front pads to put on. I just got done installing all that and I have a good hard pedal. no sponginess, and the pressure does not disapear. Not sure which one fixed the problem, but it's fixed. THANK YOU EVERYONE, for the advise.
