Question One Bad Brake

I am currently braking with 3 wheels ( the 2 front & passenger rear) I bled the system but the caliper was stiff so I bought a new one but I am still having the same problem
I get oil but it does not seam to have pressure to stop the disk
Any Advise.... Comments
Thanks_DAV 78

The lines are steel tubing and seem to be clear
the only possibility I can think of is a partially clogged line so disconnecting everything and blowing compressed air into it

sometimes the rubber hoses degrade and cause issues , although this is rare.

David, if your lines are clear,and you are sure you have all the air out of the system, and it still has no pressure to the rear , I would suspect the Master Cylinder

but that would be an issue for 2 wheels if you have a double resevoir
all four if it's a single......perhaps a proportioning valve blockage ?

it very well could be.. I was thinking that its farthest from a weak M/C , less pressure

I haven't had the time to look into it but I have a day off tomorrow
the master cylinder was replaced and it is under warranty so might change that as well but isn't the driver side the closest?

I thought it was Right Rear... are you absolutely sure the line is clear and all air is purged ? it is possible that its still in the caliper, is that a rebuilt? or like EX said, maybe proportioning valve
