Seeking some help in solving a brake problem. I am helping a Club member
bleeding the brakes on his '53 BN1 but have been unable to get a hard pedal on
the first stroke. On the second stroke, they grab very well but if you wait
even for 1 minute, it goes to the floor again on the first stroke.
The following has been done:
Replaced all 4 wheel cylinders, new repair kit in master cylinder, rear brake
liners replaced and of correct thickness.
When trying to isolate the problem by pinching the rear brake hose, the front
brakes are great and maintain good pedal, so the master cylinder is not the
problem. All three brake hoses are practically new(3 years old), not cracked,
or showing signs of any leaks. All the brake lines are tight. The problem
appears to be at the back but don't know where. Any ideas would be
