Hey All,

I can't seem to get rear brakes to my 97' burb. I replaced the master cylinder, but it doesn't seem to have any power to the rear brakes. I tried bleeding them at the cylinder, but still very little pressure from the front line (which I believe is the rear brakes).

I was thinking of taking each line off individually and blowing them out. The previous fluid in the truck honestly looked like it could be engine oil. I've never seen brake fluid that dark and thick.

The brakes feel ok until the abs kicks in or on ice and slippery sufaces. It sends all the power to the back axle and no stopping.

Kinda lost on where to go from here.
