Urgent brake question!!!
2000 Excursion, 7.3, 4x4
Here is the short story ---> I replaced all four calipers with the best NAPA had. New rear brake lines (not the center one). New green Hawk pads all the way around. Frozen Rotors up front with a set of Brembos in the back. New master cylinder. I bled the system...
Now the brakes are locking up. Pressure is not relieving off any of the calipers. To confirm this, I jacked up the front and rear, and the wheels will NOT turn.
In retrospect, I realize I made a BIG mistake... I did not bench bleed the new master cylinder. Now I have this problem and am not sure how to fix it.
The pedal stays rock hard for about ten minutes, or until I bleed pressure off the system at one of the calipers.
What do I need to do so I can fix my "temporary moment of stupid..."?
