Recently I replaced the master cylinder on my EA with one in known good working order. anywho, i bolted the m/cylinder on, filled it up with fluid, had an assistant push the pedal to the floor, covered the holes with my fingers ( i know, not the best method ) while the pedal returned. did this a few times, bled the rest of the system and i had about 3/4 pedal. a few weeks later i decided it wasnt enough of a pedal. So I got another assistant to pump the pedal a few times, then hold, I cracked one of the lines at the mastercylinder, pedal goes to the floor, nipped it back up, pedal slowly returns. get assistant to hold pedal again, crack it, pedal goes to floor etc etc, i repeated this about 3 times on each of the 3 lines at the m/cylinder, ensuring it had sufficient fluid at all times.
Next I moved to the rear PASSENGER caliper, had the assistant hold the pedal, i cracked the line, pedal goes to the floor, nip it up, pedal returns, I did this until there were no longer any bubbles expelling into the jar of fluid. Then I moved onto the next calipers and repeated the process, rear drivers was next, front passenger and finally front drivers.
Now I have a worse pedal than before! admittedly the assistant this time was my GF's 10 year old sister
so that may have had something to do with it. The only way I got my 1/2 pedal back was to self bleed ( crack a line and let it drip for 3 mines etc )
Anyways ALL the old fluid is now out of the system, I had a quick look under the rear and I think the caliper I am supposed to start on is the DRIVERS rear as the lines run down the passenger side of the car, not the drivers as i first thought.
Can someone point out anything I am doing wrong, should I start at the rear drivers or passenger bleed nipple on the falcon
( I have used above method successfully on about 5 other different cars )
Thanks for ya help!
