Ok, new pistons in rearcalipers, master cylindar is being reworked as we speak.



I put the new pistons bled the brakes and therear was still dragging so i moved to the rear mc. took it off and started to rebuild. as i was rebuilding iwent to spin the tire with all that off and it still drags. I don't think it will spin much more than a one full turn. obviously there is no pressure in the lines at all.



what next?



I was thinking lines but the lines are not even hooked up. Am i missing somethinghere?

Try pulling the slide pins (under the rubber boots, the bolts that hold the caliper go into them), cleaning them, and greasing them up really well with a good high-temp grease

It could still be the lines. I am assuming that the lines are still attached at the rear caliper and have only been removed at the master cylinder. You could have a collapsed line. This allows pressure in but not to release. Try opening the bleeder to see if there is any pressure in the system. Try spinning the rear tire with the bleeder open.

they are lubed up well; however, i don't see how they slide on the slide pins?? should they be able to move side to side? when they are tightened they don't seem to be able to be moved at all.
