Just for reference my car has factory power disc front and drum rear brakes
The only thing that hasn't been replaced as of today is the brake booster and the pedal. no i'm not kidding.
i have new calipers, rotors, drums, shoes, all the hard lines as well as all of the rubber lines have been replaced including all of the hardware. (new springs for the drums and all) I used a bendix brake manual to assemble everything and i went over it twice with my grandfather to be sure it was correct.
there are No leaks, i have wiped everything down and checked the entire system for leaks.
I get fluid at all four corners and it shoots out with plenty of force
I follow your process exactly when bleeding the brakes
I have adjusted the drums to where there is the correct amount of drag as far as i understand there is no way to adjust the disc brakes..
When i pump the brakes with the engine off there is some resistance but it never "pumps up" significantly
Soo as near as i can figure SOMETHING is not bled properly... but WHAT!?
