We finally got the 62 on the road, but the brake pedal seems soft, tillthe las inch of travel then it is firm. The car still stops great just take a whole lot of pedal travel. I have replaced all the line hoses and upgraded to disc brakes. The master cylinder is out of a 67 Nova with disc brake (manual). I have bled and bled ( vacuum and by the pedal) I have gotten all the air out and still nothing. last night after I got home from work I took the cove off the master cylinder and had the wife step on the brakes until it hit the firm spot and there is pressure ( seen the "bubbles" no not air). I'm ata loss :mad:

OK I went and one EXTREMELY small weep, so I replaced the section of hard line, so I rerouted the line so I can run sub frame connectors easier. Bled and bled again, pedal is better but not perfect. I will check the shoes Thursday afternoon.
Thanks for the help.
