Did you bench bleed the MC first before you installed it?

I have only heard of this but sometimes a vacuum pump doesn't always do that good of job. I've never used one as I a have always had someone around. The wife.

think you may be right. i used a hose from the bleed screw to bottle of trans fluid. i pumped the brakes with the engine off. had a good pedal all the way a round. then when i started the engine the pedal went to the floor and no brakes. how often does the abs get air in it?

Trans fluid I hope. Did you or someone turn the steering wheel while you were bleeding the brakes?

That's normal when the truck isn't running.

You may need to have someone help you or just let them gravity bleed for a while.
