    So, I just put on a 1ton m/c bled everything and adjusted back the brakes and that changed everything. Now I can lock up the rear with very heavy pressure but the front is "touchy" meaning that very light pressure will activate the front allot. I can control the front with foot pressure but there is absolutely no feedback and minimal travel.

    3/4 D44 and C14FF. Yesterday I had problems with the front brakes dragging and heating up almost to full lock, so off comes the M/C. I put the orginal one back on and I now have no brakes. I have pedal with the truck off but when I start it, the pedal goes to the floor. I have another 1/2 ton booster So I may put it in to see what happends.

    I'm really starting to not like brakes.
