So if I had brake fluid on the pads (soaked really) and cleaned it with Brake Parts Cleaner they would still be bad???

Thanks for the info.

APPARENTLY I have been bleeding the system incorrectly according to the Bentley Manual .

The Bentley specifies the method for bleeding brakes with a pressure system. Everything is the same except the following ADDITIONS.

-- Attach line to bleed nipple and a waste container.
-- Have helper hold brake pedal down.
-- Open Bleeder Screw
-- Have helper slowly pump brake at least 12 times with bleeder screw open.
-- holding pedal down on last pump.
-- Close bleeder screw and release brake pedal.

Hopefully the above additions to my one-man crew of bleeding brakes will help me.

Previously, I have only been following the technical bulletin on this sight on how to pressure bleed the brakes. I had a helper help me with once for a "normal" pump and hold - open bleeder, close bleeder, release brake.

I may just change the pads out anyway...
