Bleeding Scarab Master Cylinder

Post by Jod » Sat Aug 22, 2015 11:54 pm

Hello Lads

I have rebuilt a Scarab master cylinder and have been trying to bleed it for a week or 2.

Does anyone have any tips? Unable to get any fluid down to the calipers and have tried a brake vacuum etc...

Cheers,

John

More of a Brembo man myself but they`re all much the same. If you can`t get any juice down to the caliper with vacuum you might have an air leak at the master.........or along the the way to it.
