1980 Interstate rear MC return hole clogged

Post by rhensonsr »



My GW rear brake will only release if I unbolt the brake line (at caliper or MC) or open the bleeder valve. The master cylinder return hole must be clogged but I cannot get it open. I have tried wire, air, and brake cleaner (3 cans) and cannot get the hole to open. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Randel

Success! I was using a copper wire and it was strong enough to overcome the clog. Found a metal wire and with a lot of patience, the wire broke through.
