    Getting the Air out of rear Wilwood Brakes

    I just finished my new race car and have an issue with air in the rear brakes. New Wilwood master cylinder, Wilwood rear brakes from my wrecked race car, all new steel lines except for steel braided to connect rear housing line to body line, and minimum number of joints. I had to use banjo fittings because the tight spacing between strut tower and master cylinder. I've worked on this problem for 2 weeks with no luck. All lines are lower that the master cylinder and wheel cylinders are lower than master cylinder. The odd thing is that the front brakes work great and have no air in them. PLEASE HELP!

    Don't know for sure but, but on a corvette (i know not related) but the easiest way to get all the air out is gravity feed, since all the lines are below the master cylinder, take the top off the master cylinder and open the rear wheel cylinders and let it sit overnite, or keep an eye on it to make sure the master cylinder stays full.
    Just a thought.
