brake master cylindar

hey all

on saturday i had my master cylinder replaced in the ea ghia, today i decided to check the fluid and its halfway inbetween full and half, i watched the person who put the part in fill the fluid to full and he also worked through any possible air bubbles

is it possible that there were any bubbles that were missed?

its not leaking at the wheels caus they are dry of fluid bla bla bla

the old master cylinder was leaking fluid into the booster and gettting sent through the engine, apparently its a common problem

anyone got any ideas?

thanks in advance

Re: brake master cylindar

Well unless you ran your brake pads down to half.

There is another thread running on brake bleeding, and apparently you are supposed to wait 10 minutes the first few times between pedal presses to bleed the brakes, so maybe the bore wasnt completely full, fill it up, and keep an eye on it, if it drops again, take it straight back and tell them.

If it is stopping ok dont panic to much, just keep checking it.
