Default Re: 97 SC2 (No ABS) Brake Pedal goes to the floor

Why are you using DOT4? DOT3 is what is recommended IIRC. That being said have you replaced the other wheel cylinder? I may have missed it but did you replace all brake hoses and calipers? What order are you doing the bleed in? Are you using a small hammer to tap the calipers and cylinders while doing the bleed (yes air can and will "hide"). What condition is the master in? BTW re having to put the wheels on or "torque" the lugs. Not necessary. Just put the rotors on and "snug" the lugs. It's all you need. Did you grind the "ridge" down on the rear drums BTW? If not, do so. Than readjust the rear brakes and see where you are.
