I am getting a wee bit frustrated now, well pretty frustrated
I tried the two things you guys suggested, just cracking open the bleed valve letting gravity feed the fluid through, and then actually sucking to try and force the fluid through. Neither worked. So I figured I would take it off and start pulling things off.
I drained the reservoir first, then took off the line from the reservoir to the master cylinder. Fluid came out, good. Then I removed the nipple and fluid was in there. So, in conclusion of these acts, the reservoir and line and nipple inlet are all working good and clog free. Then I decided to take the snap ring off and remove the nipple completely to expose this:
Good right? Top one has a tiny hole and the bottom one looks like the valve thing you can see moving when pumping the lever with the cap off of the old master cylinder.
Fluid got all the way to that point with no assistance, and then stopped there. So I took the plunger off and had one more look. Heres what I see:
Sooooo, back to my original question, what the hell is that silver bucket thing supposed to do when this penor looking black thing inserts itself into the bucket? Cause I put some brake fluid into just this part specifically and put the plunger back on and pumped it manually no lever, and nothing happened, fluid went no where. So I have tracked it down to this thing not working properly.
I even made sure the bleed valve was good, and it was, no clogs or anything. I took it off and just blew through it with my mouth and air came out the other side where the lines connect. I tried doing this with the part where the fluid from the reservoir finally meets the master cylinder (first picture) and got blue in the face because it would let no air through what so ever.
I dont know where to go from here though... Dont even know if this piece is malfunctioning or not. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
