    Hi folks, never thought I would be asking this, but I can't seem to bleed my brakes now. I over used my ten bolt rear end so I picked up a 14 bolt. Got it in, hooked everything up, bought a new master cylinder for a C30, bench bled it and now I just cannot bleed the rear brakes. Took the bleeder screw all the way out and nothing. I have never had a problem bleeding brakes before this. Pedal down, finger off bleeder, finger on bleeder pedal up, repeat etc. What am I missing here?

    False alarm. Got the energy to take the brakes apart and found a clogged bleeder screw hole. So I bought new brake cylinders and will give it a go again

    ? Maybe try a pressure bleeder ? .

    Once you use one nothing else will do .

    Remember to bleed all fur wheels until you get fresh clean fluid out every bleeder nipple .
