brake help...

I have a 1991 f350 crew cab 4x4 7.5l truck. Just got the rear drums replaced and a new parking break line put in. I was having problems with the parking break sticking. Parking break works great now but the regular breaks sink to the floor now. When the truck is off I can pump the pedal twice before it gets hard. When the car is on I hear "air" or a "whoosh" coming from the pedal when I press it down. Brake fluid is full. Any ideas.... Thanks

Re: brake help...

Does it have rear antilock brakes or 4 wheel antilock?

Re: brake help...

I do not know what kind of antilock brakes it has. Is there a way to tell. Just got the truck. Thanks

Re: brake help...

First, I thought anti locks were only on disk brakes, but I could be wrong. Anywhoo, how well did you bleed your brakes?

Re: brake help...

RABS can be on drum brakes. That's the usual case.
