Ok so I really didn't want to post this but here i am.
To start I have searched on line a bunch and have tried many different things but here i am still.
So i replaced rear brake lines from the splitting block on the frame rail ( proportioning valve ? )
ABS block is deleted
I also replaced all of the brake components ( shoes, hardware and drums ) and i had the drums turned while they were mounted onto the hubs.
I have the spongy pedal problem.
Problem is, I cant get these dang things to bleed.
I've tried, gravity bleeding, gravity bleeding into bottle, manually bleeding them and 2 different vacuum systems and i still cannot get a firm pedal.
To be clear the brakes were absolutely fine before the brakes were done.
I have gone through over half a gallon of brake fluid and still have a spongy pedal.
Anybody have any insight of something else i should look at?
Any input would be great.
