Brake Issues

I swapped over to a dual master cylinder (out of a Granada), using the existing rod, and I am not getting any brake pressure. My husband picked up a proportioning valve out of a GM truck. We have bled the brakes and aren't getting any air.

I have a '65 with a 289 and disk brakes, in the front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before the install to get all the air out of it?

Re: Brake Issues

If you are getting a strong stream of brake fluid coming out of all the bleeder's,then the hydralic system is working. Look at the component's that the hydralic system is tring to push ,like the wheel cylinder's,caliper's and rear brake adjustment is a must.
