no fliud in caliper/lines

Postby Iggys » Fri Feb 15, 2013 6:40 pm



Worked out alot of carb issues earlier on my new to me '83 (28000 on clock). Brake felt a bit mushy so brought out the mighty-vac and started with the right caliper( probably should have started with left). Drew out some fluid but reservoir didn't seem to drop, hummm. Left drew fluid and reservoir dropped notably. Oopps, to much so refill and re-bled left. Back to the right but only a little fluid and then none. Took off the brake line from the caliper and nothing. Pumped master cylinder, same "mush" and still no fluid out of right hose. Ideas ? Suggestions before I start tearing into everything ?

OMG !! I just learned that '83's have an integrated brake system. So right caliber is operated by rear M/C. I feel like an idiot and its time to buy an owners manual.
