I cant figure out why i barely have any break pressure. i just changed out the master cylinder and flushed the break lines of all the old fluid, and bleed my breaks and my break pedal still goes all the way to the floor. there doesnt seem to be any kinks in my break lines. does anybody have any clue on what is wrong with my breaks, cause i dont.

Did you bench bleed the MC?

It is possible you received a bad MC especially if it was a rebuilt one.

I just did a bunch of brake repairs with my 92 XJ.

AFTER screwing around for a long time trying to get mine bled with little to NO success.

I went to Advance Auto (Local store) for more Brake fluid but saw they had a little $6 one-man brake bleeder system. Magnet holds it HIGHER than the Caliper and is very much the TICKET!

I have a hand held vacuum bleeder that is worthless compared to this rig!

I highly suggest it! It got me back up and running after screwing around for two days!

Been there done that!!
After a certified ASE brake mechanic screwed my brakes up.
I found that he didnt know how to bleed a master cylinder.
If you follow the instructions in any master cylinder box new or rebuilt.
1) fill the MC
2) let some fluid come out of the ports to lubricate them
3) cap off the port holes dont use your fingers
4) depress the push rod no more than 1 inch
5) watch for bubbles coming thru the fluid if you dont use lines for bleeding
6) depress the the rod until 1/8 inch is a chieved or until no bubbles are
coming thru the fluid
7) leave the caps on the ports until you are ready to mount the lines
