Brake problem

Asked by Apr 06, 2017 at 05:02 PM about the 1966 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the with a after market power brake booster and new duel
master cylinder, purporting valve, new calipers, rubber hoses and even new
brake pads. The calipers have 4 piston and all 4 work great sitting in the
shop. I used a power bleeder and there is no air in the system. There are no
leaks.  I still cannot lock the wheels up. The brakes are no better from the
original equipment. What am I missing?

Check for bad master cyl. Even though it is new, also could have rusted inner metal brake lines.AND KEEP BLEEDING.
