    Well I got all my new stainless steel brake lines on the front and the 4in lift pitman arm. (the first pitman arm I got was machined wrong from factory and wouldnt fit so I ran back and got a replacement of the same kind)

    I was bleeding my brakes and im getting no pedal at all im going to be replacing the master cylinder hoping thats the problem.
    when opening up the resovour it shot up like a geiser in the larger bowl.
    Someone had said it might be the distubution block thingy for the brakes im hoping not i hear they are expensive.

    what do you all think is that problem?

    no i didnt bench bleed it because it is the original i havent got the new one yet.

    if im going to have to take it off im getting a new one.

    how do you bleed them while its in the truck or can you?

    i have just never seen one shoot up like a geiser like that before when filling it up.

    any ideas on the prop valve theory?
