Baer Brake problems

Just installed Baer 4 wheel disc brakes, all new lines. Bleed the brakes with the bleeder system ( cant remember the name brand) that pushes fluid from the wheel cylinders. Actually went pretty easy. Did them twice just to make sure no air was in the system. Pedal was pretty good but not like my camaro and I have the same brakes. It does have a power booster also.

I started the motor for the first time and the brakes now go way down when the motor was running. Havent had a chance to troubleshoot them yet. Just trying to get some ideas.

The booster was not bench bleed because the fluid was pushed to the master cylinder.

So my plan is to remove the booster to bench bleed then reinstall. Then bleed the brakes again. I usually use the mity vac pump and suck to the wheel cylinders.

What other things should I look at?

Re: Baer Brake problems

Start with the bench bleeding. Doesn't matter which direction the fluid moves, it still can't push all the air out of the master when its in the car.

I think bench bleeding should fix your issue, but check for leaks too.
