This is becoming a load of crap faster than I can bail!!!
Got it all buttoned up today, bled brakes out and couldn't get solid pedal. No problem, right? Just bleed some more! Half gallon of brake fluid later, I realize I have a problem. fronts lock up great, rear= nada.
Call up a buddy who has done a similar swap, he informs me that the master cylinder will NOT feed the calipers, he went through the same thing and turns out a MC from a 68 Corvette has the disk/disk resivior.
First trip to Autozone, pick up MC for 18 bucks, awesome, right? Twelve dollar core, but hey, I am sure I will be back sometime and will get it later. Get home, takes about 7 minutes to install, I set up the little tubes and proceed to bench bleed it on the Jeep..... Nothing!! Tap the bottom of new MC, see bubbles, think progress is in the works. Tap more, more bubbles...Thirty freaking minutes later, I am still tapping, still getting bubbles, and NO PEDAL!!!!
Decide MC is faulty, (have got inoperative parts before, just not very often) load up in truck, head back to autozone across town, swap for 'nother.
On way home, think about it for a bit and wonder if hole in MC is same as one I removed...Get home, find that new MC has a hole about two inches deeper than original MC. No problem, bench bleed new MC on bench this time, grind head from 3/8ths by two bolt and gently fit (cram) into hole in MC.
Install new MC w/bolt on Jeep, proceed in house to ask wife to help me bleed brakes. Wife is working out to her new Jilllian DVD's and reluctantly agrees to put on other clothes and come help me..Informs me I will be doing dishes for next week because she has to start over...(I knew I didn't like that Jillian chick, just now I know why!)
Get wife to pump, break fittings at MC...Pedal gets harder, yeah! three times later, I am back to having very little pedal, and pumping 4 or 5 times to get that, the fronts lock and the rears are like "hey, screw you"...
I am going to bed!!
If anybody who has done this "upgrade" has had any of these problems, please chime in......
I am 1 quart of brake fluid away from going full on postal!
You don't need a parachute to skydive... You need a parachute to skydive TWICE!!!
Up here - we go by results, when you preached, people slept. When he flew, people prayed.
It's like dads new mistress. You hate her until you see her boobs.
I bet the new bike riding monkey will pedal a lot faster!
