Re: [T3] Brakes help

 I bought my "new" parts from a good
company(BMA)www.bmaparts.com. They import German
parts. I put ATE rear wheel cylinders in and Brembo
disks up font. I did not replace calipers or rubber
lines. I have changed the system to a dual circuit 
master about four years ago. I bled the system myself
with a vacume pump at each cylinder. There are no
leaks. The old rear whell cylinders did leak
(Brazillian kind)
 I replaced the disks because the front wheel bearings
had locked up and actually broke my spindle on the
right side. The bearings were Japanese( dont know why)
Maybe the vacume pump is not strong enough to pull any
air bubles all the way out the rear wc?
