    Did you remove the check valve in the master cylinder, or drill a hole through it? If not this will result in the problem you are having.

      Jim will call back, Robert. 'Give him time to get home and have a bite to eat. He's a very responsible vendor.

          Not sure of your question? Avantis and other factory disk brake Studes do not have a residual pressure valve in the master cylinder. Your original master cylinder has this valve and it must be either removed or "defeated" by drilling a hole through it or it will lock up the front brakes.
