I now have a complete rebuilt , re assembled, braking system with : a new master cylinder , rebuilt front and rear callipers ,[
all from Ruth, so they should all be good !! ],new flex hoses rebuilt servo / slave cylinder by me using a genuine rebuild kit ,
new pads , new fluid . I also have lots of spilled brake fluid and a head ache !! Our local Big Show takes place on Saturday , and
I can't bleed the @#$%^%^^ ing system .!
The pedal won't move , unless I crack a joint . I've worked my way out along the pipes ; from the master cylinder [ the one
attached to the brake pedal ] cracking joints until I have vented air and dribbled fluid . I can get fluid , and pedal movement ,
through the servo/slave cylinder to the junction fitting with the mysterious " shuttle valve" . Then the pedal goes solid . I can't
bleed fluid from the centre port which carries the pressure switch.
What does this thing do ? can it be stripped and cleaned ? Do I need some fancy device to keep the shuttle in place while bleeding
the complete system from scratch ??
