^Many thanks guys! \:D/

John asked for a recap. Everything for the month went smooth except brake system issues. I started out by tearing the old doghouse tins and oil cooler off the engine and put together a 36horse doghouse shroud. Cleaned up the engine bay and bolted that in without any problems. On to the front end. Which I had to redo twice on the pass side because of that bad cylinder. Rear end, notched the rear springplates re-adjusted, rebuilt the rear brakes. Mounted up new tires on wheels I painted a while back. Worked out the electrical gremlins, strapped in the tank and go. Everything went good...pretty stoked about it! Had a real good time. =D>

I decided to convert my cars to dual circuit master cylinders after a scare last summer....might as well start with this one!

I'm having trouble getting any pressure built up while bleeding the system. I open the valves and the fluid is barely dripping out....any advise?? #-o

Can you feel the pedal push rod touch the plunger in the master cylinder? Stuck plunger? Take it apart and bleed it on the bench in a vise.

Varga is notorious for ocassional inconsistant master cyls. They are fair quality otherwise though when they send one that works.

Deffenitly start with trying to build pressure at the master cyl before attempting to bleed the system.

make sure that the resivoir fittings fit tight and seal well too

The pushrod is definately moving the plunger. Yep, I've got to bench bleed the master and try it again....

Clamp brake lines off with vise grip and bleed one at a time. I assume that your brakes and ebrake cables are adjusted?

Thanks, that was it. I never had to bench bleed a master cylinder until this one..guess I was lucky in the past. All primed up and brakes working great.

While I had the tank out I sprayed it...was nearly 60 degrees here yesterday!

New WW rubbers with chrome this weekend \:D/

I would love to know how the vw factory used to put these chrome inserts in...I thought it was time consuming and more difficult than installing the glass...
