I thank you for your help... we will try a new wheel cylinder tomorrow.. Your response was excellent, I hope it works... Sound right considering the problem occured immedietely after brakes were replaced
THANK YOU ANDREW T. MENNITI May I follow up with you Thursday?
THIS IS NOT BECAUSE I AM NOT SATISFIED, I AM!!
Hi Steve Sorry to be so late.. I was at garage today... told them what you said to try.. put in new wheel cylinder, no change... What was tried today.. anti sway valve, this was the valve connected to the left rear spring.. by-passed it completely.. still no luck bleeding left rear wheel. proportional valve, unit in front right drivers side by steering box took it apart all looked good removed internal cylinder / sleeve o rings ok, left it out just to try to bleed no luck same outcome, left wheel air... put everything back normal tried new master cylinder, maybe one put in the other day defected still no change. now remove lines from master cylinder, plug where line fittings go on cylinder.. pedal up hook lines back up to master cylinder... no pedal???? going crazy... this is a simple brake system.. we ruled out any leaks in lines where we are not able to see them, like over gas tank... if a line was bad i think we would not have had a good pedal when we clamped off the left rear wheel as lines are before the clamp... ???? What do you think???? Thanks Drew
Hi Steve, It turned out to be I believe its called an anti-sway valve located on the left side and attaches to the front of the rear spring.... It was a guess all the way... Just thought it may be that since the problem was at the rear of brake lines..... Everything appears to be fine now.... Crazy!!!
