I had problems this year when I took the rag top out for the first time. When I pushed the pedal, the car steered to the right straight away and the "lined up" and headed straight. This happened everytime (tried it about 10 times) Breaking power was normal. Everything else was fine - just steered right and then lined up and headed straight. After a while, my brakes just...disapeared. No braking power what so ever.
Since I changed all the gaskets and renovated the front brakes (discs) last year, I figured - "It has to be the master cylinder!". So - Off I went and had the master cylinder renovated. Put it back in the car, attached everything (checked for leaks - no problem, nice and dry everywhere) Bled the brakes (pedal was feeling firm. No air in the lines). Started her up and slowly
(thank God) took her down my driveway.Again - I had lost all brake power. There was not even enough power for the weels to stop rotating even if I was driving on gravel. When we bled the brakes, everything was fine. 2 minutes later, all braking power was gone.
So - my first question is - What the heck is wrong with my brakes? Could it be the front pistons, or the gaskets. Again? It's only been a year since I last took it apart and changed the gaskets! I have had the car parked in a cold storage during winter. Have I missed something completely or what?
Could someone please explain to me how the brake circuit is connected? Is the rear right brake connected to the left front brake? Are the two rear brakes connected separately from the front brakes? How does it all hang together?
I have discs in front and drums in the rear. I also have PB's, if that makes a difference.
Please help! Summer is approaching. Fast.
