    Is the pedal getting hard, or will it just not pump up at all?

    Does it stay pumped up with good solid pedal even after 5 or 10 minutes? When you bleed the rears, do you get a good stream of fluid or just a sort of a dribble? And are the rears simply not working at all? If you have the rear wheels off the ground, engine running and someone steps of the brakes do the rears lock up so you can't turn them?

    Does the pedal feel normal? What condition is the brake booster in?

    If you have flow related issues, start working your way toward the master cylinder, cracking lines open looking for where flow is restored. I strongly suspect you'll find the proportioning valve is leaking or not working correctly.

    Glad you got it figured out. What does rebuking the system consist of...did you just talk sternly to it?

    Ha more like puking the brake system .. But now my rear brake lights are staying on unless I take my toes and pull brake pedal back the last 1/8 of a inch.. Then they go off.. I'm thinking maybe a new brake light switch?
