Topic: Help a 3,800lb car to not hurt anyone at Summit...
Bought a new master cylinder for the Galaxie... the only braking component we haven't replaced... bench bled it, installed it and while bleeding the brakes we hear a 'pop' from the front of the car. Before the 'pop' while bleeding the rears, bleeding would shoot fluid five feet from the rear; post 'pop' we get a very small amount of fluid and the pedal will barely compress even with the bleed valve open. The fronts shoot a ton of fluid while bleeding. The rears seem to be a little bit engaged... tough to spin w/o some leverage, but I did just replace the pads.
Did we blow a seal or something in the rear circuit in the master? Someone mentioned a collapsed line as a possibility, but I'm not seeing it or what necessarily to check for.
