Any hydraulic brake experts out there?
« on: May 01, 2018, 03:47:40 PM »
Finishing up my front axle rebuild and attempting to bleed the brakes. I can pull vacuum at the wheel cylinder but no fluid comes thru.  Is my problem with bleeding the M/C?

You should not pull vacuum at an open bleeder.  The bleeder in not open, its plugged, the line is plugged or kinked, or the MC is plugged.
