    ok, i got an 84 k10, put on a set of reman calipers yesterday on the font, all went fine. got them bled , and everything looked cool, bledthe rear as well. the problem is that im getting a sream of brake fluid shooting straight up from the master cylinder resivoir in both sections of the resivoir, the harder you push on the brakes the messier it gets. now im pretty sure this isnt normal. has anyone ever seen this before? brakes are very soft still, so im thinkin i need to rebleed them. am i right? thanks for any sugestions.

    Thats normal dude, put the cover on while bleeding them. Only open when you stop to check the fluid level.

    Since you are in Florida, you can also wash all that splattered brake fluid off painted surfaces before the paint comes off with it!

    Just a little tip for you. :)

    Since no one else said it, welcome to PlowSite :waving:
