Push hard and live
All these exchanges are a little complicated to follow for me who have an imperfect English.
What I can tell :
Bleeding the brakes is a real mess, we can all testify.
I bought this: https://www.amazon.fr/Gunson-77021-Système-professionnel-liquide/dp/B002WD5XOQ
It works very well. And as soon as someone has trouble bleeding (the clutch is sometimes worse, I have a long story on the 2600 one) I come to the rescue with this tool. It has always made the unhappy man smile.
If you don't have it, remember :
You can replace the bleeders thread sealant by copper grease
Do not give up, Don, we're all behind you!
As I’ve commented before, I’ve put together several sets of 102 brakes. Bleeding to perfection has always been a 30 minute job. The difference here is the “auto adjusting” brakes. My “feel” on this is that the stroke distance of at least one wheel is too much.
The two fronts and right rear go from freewheeling to locked in the last click of the adjusters, at which point the adjusters will absolutely turn no more. The left rear gradually goes into lockup over several turns, and several additional turns can be taken after lockup.
This, of course, suggests very bad shoe-face alignment. I reckon I’ll start there today, for the 4th time. Gotta be missing something....
