...from the spindles out, from my 89 donor Lebaron. I bled the rear bleeder valves untill clear fluid showed (I use SpeedBleeder valves). I experienced intermittent hard pedal. But I managed to get all the old ice tea looking brake fluid out. Tightened the bleeder valves and moved to the front of the car and tried to bleed the front brakes. No can do. I get a constant hard pedal...like I have a bad brake booster. I started the car and when put in gear it acts like the emergency brake is on but I didn't reconnect the E-brake cable. Did I ruin the o-rings in the master cylinder or blow the booster when I bled the rear brakes? Maybe the front caliper(s) are hanging up? I had to pump the pedal extrmely hard while bleeding the rear brakes and it felt as if something gave way suddenly. Started raining so thats as far I I got. This car had sat for over a year and alot of things on it are showing it. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks -PTT

Did both back brakes bleed as the frnt left rear right are one side of the master and the others are the other side of the master. Jack it up and see if all wheels spin and maybe isolate which one

At the moment, it's raining hard here in (the sunshine-less state) Florida. I know the back wheels turn freely. I'll check the front as soon as I can. Thanks -PTT
