Open the bleeder and let it drain first for a few minutes at each wheel. Then go back and bleed them the normal way.

sounds like the mastercylinder went dry gonna be alot of air to get out.. start passanger right back then drive back then passanger front then driver front till you dont see tons of air coming out then close each one, one at a time. then do normal bleeding get the BIG bottle of brake fuild... hopefully it wont come to having to bench bleed the master to get it right

hey zach, if you guys have a harbor freight near your house, or well, any decent auto parts store you can get a MityVac brake bleeder...turns brake bleeds into a one man job...and in your situation where you're possibly facing a large amount of air in the system it will cut your time in half...

they're about 30 bucks...

yeah, it's kinda hard to justify spending the 30 some odd dollars for a one time use, but for guys like me who drive all the damn time and usually have bikes, they come in damn handy for clutch bleeds, brake bleeds, engine treatments and what ever else...

hopefully you get it fixed soon though...

well this blows.

drove it today, it sucked, all over the place. something with my steering.

either the yota box or the drag link based with the trac bar is not a good combo.

this weekend I'm going to look into moving the steering box and or a new trac bar

anyone know which port is the high pressure side on the yota box? i would think i have the right one it wouldnt steer at all.

basically my steering sucks. and that yota box has no power at all. it doesnt even turn.

i'm kinda discouraged. but i need some opinions on what i should do? new box? how much play in the box is too much?


i'm going to a frame and alignment shop Monday, prolly going to trailer it there and see what they can come up with.
