Hi All,

just wondered if anyone has any ideas how to fix this problem. 

I just fitted a new brake master cylinder and 2 front wheel cylinders last week, but seem to have another issue now.  

Brakes work fine all round, but I have traced what appears to be a restriction between one front wheel cylinder and the T piece on the front axle. 
The solid pipes appear to be undamaged so I I'm thinking it's likely the T piece, do these have a valve in them at all.?
The other thought would be the flexi pipe, can these become restricted with age, swell up inside etc ?
The offending side is very hard to bleed, and sometimes causes the brake to hold on.  Cracking off the bleed nipple releases the pressure so it's definitely within that section of pipeline. All the brake shoes are good, move freely. No fluid leaks. Everything else works fine. 

Thanks for your ideas on this

All the best. 

Bob.

Hi

This has all the symptoms of a collapsed hose. There is no valve in the tee piece.

second that, take the flexible hose off and check it, or if it looks old just replace it anyway

Change all the hoses -if one has gone, the others are on the way.

Seconded! Change the lot there is a flexi hose at the back axle, one from under rad to front axle and one each to wheel cylindrer at front. . Change the lot!  Do you have manual for brake adjustment procedure? It does need to be done by the book.
