Brake tips


Recommended Posts

Ever notice you replace a brake part that requires bleeding the system,things work fine then your master cylinder craps out?The trick is to place a 2x4 or some sort of stop under the brake pedal before you start pumping to bleed the system.The master cyl.under normal operation does not go to the floor.Crud forms in the normally untouched area of the cyl. piston.When you go to the floor you damage the piston.Also ever get that slight squeak,squeak from your front brakes that stops when you just barely touch the brakes?Apply CLOTH duct tape to the brake pad(of course I mean the metal side!)and assemble as normal.It will be sandwiched between the pad and anti squeal plate.I've done this since '73.I get about 6000 miles out of a piece of duct tape.
