Thanks for the reply.

Sorry - I was trying to keep my first post short.

No prportioning valve, that I could find anyway. I also looked through Pelican's array of brake lines, and did not find a proportioning valve.

I do have a black thing near the M/C in the trunk. It's under a small carboard piece. There is no fluid here either. Someone suggested it is a pressure valve for the front brakes???

I have the Motive Power Bleeder.

TODAY - I have gone through 3 1/2 quarts now. As opposed to other days with 2 quarts.

With bleeder open (on each caliper), I have tapped on the hard line near transmission, tapped on flex-line, tapped on hard line on caliper, and pounded the caliper silly.

Yesterday, I had a helper pressing the brakes. Still no go (or stop).

I have switched my rear caliper's bleed screws with each other. I am able to stall the engine, if I hit it REALLY HARD AND FASt. But not if I slowly hit the brake pedal..... maybe this is good?

SOOOOOo maybe I need some bleed screws...

The pedal is feeling better. I think I will try bleeding them all again (another quart).

Anyone else with some suggestions???
