I just learned that you can bleed the brake cyl. I've never had to do that before. I'm going to try that tonight and hope for the best. If not I'm going to lean on the community for help. I'm just not happy with the feel. It feels spongy and am able to press the pedal (hard) to the floor.

Brake cyl bleeding didn't fix the issue. I don't have any leaks. I'm going to power bleed the system and see if that helps. If that doesn't work, I'll replace the master cyl with a new one.

Are you bleeding with second person?

 

If you bled at the master, all 4 wheels have to get done again as well.

 

pedal is? :

 

quickly sinking to floor

 

slowly sinking to floor with decent resistance but just sinks

 

slowly sinking with so so resistance

 

help us help you :)

 

Edit:  Sorry just re-read above.  Spongy, but hard. 

 

Sounds like air to me.  Its gonna have a bit of squish at the first inch or so, but it should harden right up/ not sink.

I was bleeding with a friend (the normal 2 person way). Got all the air out, no more bubbles after checking 2-3 times. The peddle is spongy but can be pressed to the floor and bottom out with a little force.

More info:

fronts: wilwoods
rears: 280zx
master: 7/8 size
brake bias: wilwood installed in cabin


1) I'm wondering if the rear brake pads need to be adjusted more...
2) The MC is making the same noise as this one (not my video) but is this normal:

Time for a long overdue update. I was plagued with brake issues. First the bleed screws on the rear were junk, then a brake line was leaky, then the MC went out. I then went through two MCs that were bad out of the box. I now have everything fixed and the brakes are great. I've made a change in the seats and switched to Kirkeys. I've installed two of them and custom trans tunnel. So far I've finished:

Finish up wiring the brake lights and head lights from scratch
Install turn signal switch
Fix brakes
Get alignment
Install new seats
Fab tranny cover
Install rear window
Install front grill and radiator fan


A few random photos:

All that is left is to somehow spruce up the interior a little. I'm thinking some quilted leather. I did this on a past project:

And install the hood and wrap the hood. Then off to the dyno!

Just curious.  Are you running a Nissan trans with an adaptor for the F22C or any other milled parts from them?  I mill some of the parts for one of the tuners out there's kits so I was curious. 


I hate when people go cheap on repairs or modifications.  If you were just going to light your money on fire using band-aid fixes you might as well have given it to me.
