I have a 34 Ply PE which is experiencing a serious brake

Customer Question

I have a 34 Ply PE which is experiencing a serious brake problem. I have had a new master cylinder installed and bled the brakes several times, checked for fluid leaks (none found), adjusted the brakes shoes, and still the pedal goes to the floor with very little braking power. The brake linings are about 50-60% worn. THE BRAKES WILL NOT PUMP UP!
Four mechanics have looked at it and are stumped. Could you offer some suggestions to cure this?
Thanks, LE

HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
First, to eliminate it simply being a defective master cylinder, you need to remove the lines and plug the ports on the master cylinder with threaded inserts. Pedal should be high and tight. If not, it is defective.
If ok, re install the lines, remove the lines to the wheel cylinders and plug. reinstall one line at a time and test pedal. At whichever one you reinstall and pedal goes to the floor, that is the problem wheel - either wheel cylinder or hardware for the shoes.
