I need everyones help ASAP and as much as possible. Thank You.

I just installed the 1991 Honda Civic EX 4-door brake master cylinder in my 1993 Honda Civic DX to replace the old 13/16" one with the new 15/16" version.

My dad and I just bled the brakes for maybe 10 minutes because it was dark and now my the car has NO BRAKES. After we were gonna test it, I kept on pressing the brake pedal down and all you feel is it going to the floor and you can hear a "noise" sounding like a low growl "duehhhhh" when pressing it to the floor.

What can be happening to cause this???

PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!

Here is the original thread with someone doing the same thing with excellent results...

I believe we are leaking anything. Checked for leaks many times but found none, everything is as tight as it needs to be.

The pedal feel when the engine is off is soft but there is still some feel, just reallly soft to the floor.

When it is on, no pedal feel at all, just straight down the floor.

When the engine is off, I hold the pedal down and when I turn it on, the pedal sinks down more.

I think I have to bleeed more.

Got it fixed today. Guess what the problem was? A simple stupid thing. Hopefully you guys will learn from our mistake.

We left the rubber that was inside the MC power cylinder and also used the new rubber that was on the actual MC 15/16" unit. Thus we had two rubbers used and thus the barrel obviously had a hard time reaching the inside.


ARGHHH! All that time wasted because of a simple mishap.

Thanks for your guys help! Or lackthereof.
