I did NOT have any issues until I changed out my front lines. The do not appear to be leaking. I bled and bled and then bled some more and never maintained pressure. I came to the conclusion that my problem was the master cylinder and bought a reman master cylinder. It is now leaking between the master and the booster. Is this a bad master cylinder?
Second question. My brake light is always on in the speedo. I'm not sure the above is connected. Is there an adjustment on the parking brake that I am missing?
Yes, it should not be leaking there. Did you possibly damage when installing?
How were you bleeding the original MC?
I have the light problem also, there is a wire on the back of the emergency brake pedal that is pretty hokey. My is usually on but flickers, I just ignore it, I have bigger problems to deal with on it.
