Hey guys, I was having a problem with the handbrake so stripped down the rear calipers and un-seized everything and put on new seals and shoes. After that I bled the brakes using a Gunson Bleeder and when finished the pedal was sinking to the floor, I then got the nephew to help me and bled them again manually and he said all was running out clear and the brake was tight as a drum but once the engine was started the brake sinks very slowly when I keep my foot on it and if I'm driving and hit the brakes the car stops no problem but if I hit the brake, let go and hit it again real quick a second time the car keeps going, although the pedal is still hard the car wont brake and if I drive it another bit and brake it stops no problem. Seems if you hit it twice or three times straight after each other it wont stop the car and pedal stays hard.
Anyone any ideas on why this is happening. I was thinking master cylinder but ruled it out as the car was fine before I changed everything and made sure I had the reservoir cap off before doing any work. Could it be that maybe the calipers have seized again although the hand brake is working perfect now when before it was locking the wheels up every time you used it and didn't release until you were 3 mile down the road. Has me baffled and feeling a bit uneasy using the car until I know how to fix it, maybe I need new rear calipers altogether but have a feeling it's something really stupid or could the bleeder have blew air somewhere I don't know about or maybe there is a certain way to bleed the brakes in these cars as I only bought it and don't know a big lot about it.
