The truck is an Isuzu ELF 1998 model NPS 72 L
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When I released the bleeder it released the brakes

So you have a master cylinder that is not releasing, is it fully returning?

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The peddle is yes.

SO the master cylinder is not!

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
do I need to kit the master cylinder

Yes, or adjust it so it returns further.
