confused 93aero brakes wont bleed after EH valve

I replaced the EH valve in van cause of sponggy brakes. Now I cant get my brakes to bleed back the way they should be. I can pump fluid to the back brakes but the will not get hard, pedal almost to the floor.Has any body else had this problem or can some one tell me what I havent done or what I have done wrong? Seems like I am pumping fluid but not making any pressure.

Re: 93aero brakes wont bleed after EH valve

The RABS valve/EH valve should bleed just fine as long as you follow a few simple rules for bleeding the brakes properly.

Keep the master cylinder topped off during the entire bleeding process to prevent air from entering the lines.

Ensure the bleeder valves are closed before starting to bleed the brakes.

Start by bleeding the right rear, then left rear, then right front, then left front. If the front lines haven't been removed and the master cylinder has never been empty during the attempt to bleed the rear brakes....don't worry about the front.

Pump the brake pedal a few times and hold it down. Have a buddy open the bleeder valve while you hold down on the pedal. Once your foot goes to the floor, have your buddy close the valve BEFORE taking your foot off the pedal.

Repeat the process until a steady stream of fluid exits the bleeder valve (i.e. no "sputtering"). Be sure to keep the master cylinder topped off while bleeding the brakes.

Good luck!

Brian

Re: 93aero brakes wont bleed after EH valve

92bigbronco Have done that in that order also,It pumps fluid very good to the right rear, the left rear dont work the same.For some reason it doesnt seem to build pressure like the other side.Could there be problem with dist.valve here? I have read some were that if it looses pressure it can move a valve or some thing to mess things up.Also what is power bleeding? It pushes fluid but will not build up pressure on the pedal.
