OK my brakes are gone!! I just put a 6 inch on my 80 1/2 ton. There is no pressure in em at all. I have tried bleeding them but to avail, so My question is, should I bleed them some more see if that works? Also my tie rod ends are rubbing on the inside of my wheel. I was figuring it's my wheels the offset might be wrong any thing else it might be?
Thanks

as long as you have no holes in your lines you could try to gravity bleed them and see if that works. put the rig on stands under the frame and let the axles hang and then open them up and let em flow.
try it and see if it works or not

good luck. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I replaced my calipers when I put my ss lines on and it took about 8 times bleeding it to get a decent pedal. I went from front to back and back to front until they finally pumped up.

You need less back spacing on your wheels if they are rubbing on the tie rod ends. You could go with some 1/4" wheel spacers or get new rims with the correct backspacing.

Bleed your brakes a few times to get it right. If that doesn't work look at your booster/MC needing to be replaced. Gravity bleeding does good but takes a while....good luck
