Re: Lag II brake issues


Managed to do a bit more with this.

The fluid in the reservoir was a dark treackle-like colour, instead of a nice light honey colour. So, a lot of MityVac action later, I have managed to get a lighter coloured fluid circulated to all four calipers.

I passed a nearly a litre of fluid through the system and the reservoir fluid is all fresh. However, now when full pressure is applied, the pedal does not sink away like there's a bleed nipple open!

I still need to do a final bleed as the pedal is still a bit mushy, but as I spent a few hours at this, I reckon it was best to leave it overnight to let any air in the system settle out to make bleeding easier.

One more bleed all round and it should be sorted and thankfully the master cylinder seems OK.
