Am I missing something bleeding the brakes?

there isn't anything special I need to do bleeding the brakes is there?

Put on the new calipers, and I have bled the whole way around 2 times, and still the brakes are barely there.

Gravity bleeding the 4 right now.
Bled the master, had some air in there.
It's a pain to do in the truck, but its possible.

william you need some help bleeding them brakes. i have tried the speed bleeders and the "one person" bleeders as well but nothing kicks the air's a$$ better than the ol left foot. i always bled the right rear, left rear, rabs, front right, front left in that order. which you probly did but just makin sure.
did you check for leakys? one little seep will give you brakes for a few minutes on the road but quickly deplete your pedal

Do one wheel at a time. Take a small plastic Coke bottle fill it partially with fluid and run hose form bleeder to bottle, make sure hose sits in the fluid in the bottle. Fill Mast cyl, open bleeder and pump like hell onthe brake pedal. Stop and check to make sure it's not overflowing, then pump some more.
Keep mast cyl full and do 2 bottles worth at each wheel. Seems to work well for me. Actually even better than the 12v vacuum I used to use.

Oh I think i see what your saying.

Open it up and just pump the brakes by yourself. The fluid in the can will suck back in, so you'll eventually work all the air out if you keep doing it.

Last nights accident might have left me with no fluid to do that with.
I'll have to see.

I duno if i have any hose to do it with.
I'll just a Dr Pepper bottle too if you wanna know. *neener!!*

Vacuum bleeders are great, but suck in air.

I gotta bleed the master again I think. I'ma do that first, need somebody to help with that unfortunatly.

I was gonna bleed rabs and then the rears, but i'll do rears then rabs.
I was thinking air could get trapped in the rabs, so i'd bleed it first.


You should see me at home race, I talk to myself all day.
