Re: Manual brake question
Thanks for the input Denis and Muadi
Muadi, Im using a disc/disc combination valve I got from "The Right Stuff". Im using it for the same reason, to have the brake light work. And my MC is a 1'' disc/disc, I think its from an old corvette. Ive bleed the brakes many times, first with a vacumn bleeder, then a Motive pressure bleeder, and finaly old fashioned budy method, I dont know what else I can do to these things.
Denise what I was refering to with the bleeder screw was, when i push the pedal down it would go about 3 or 4 inches with very little pressure then stop dead , kinda felt like i was bottoming out the MC. But when I had a friend get under it to help bleed it, I found that the pedal would drop another inch when he opened the bleeder screw. Im thinking I must be getting pressure or else I would have been able to push the pedal down the full amount to begin with.
Im thinking I need to just get the car road worthy and test everything out, but rite now it just doesnt feel rite to me. Ive never had manual brakes before so I have nuthing to refrence the feel to. This has been very frustrating, I wish I woulda just bought a full kit instead of piecing it together.
Im tempted to call up touring classics and have them send me a new MC, pushrod and adjustable PV and see what that does.
