No Rear Brakes '67 Camaro
I pulled the drum brakes off of the 8.2" 10-bolt to transfer to a fresh 12-bolt rear. When removing I noted the brake shoes were not adjusted for solid contact with the drums. I also found the front to rear line was pinched flat at one point. Those two things made me believe the car's rear brakes were not functioning.
Now I have installed the rear brakes onto the 12-bolt rear and replaced the front to rear brake line. This morning when trying to bleed the rear lines we couldn't get any pressure. Multiple pumps yielded no pressure at the rear wheel cylinders. With the master cylinder cap removed, when you apply the brakes, the front reservoir fluid pushes up while the rear reservoir fluid doesn't move. This leads me to believe the master cylinder is bad, as in not pushing fluid to the rear brakes. The rear brake concerns are compounded.
What does the hive think?
