Hello All,
I could use a little guidance again. I am in the process of reviving my 1967 Coupe which has been on jack stands for 15 years. With the help from members of this forum I was able to get her running again. I am at the point of going through the brakes right now and I thought I would start with flushing out the brake fluid on each wheel by using the old bleeding process. I replaced the fluid OK on the front two wheels. The old stuff looks like crap but now the fluid appears clear. When I attempted to replace the fluid in the rears, I couldn't get any fluid to push out the bleeder valves.
Could this mean that the wheel cylinders are bad or does this mean I need to look at the master cylinder? The car currently has drum brakes front and rear. Your thoughts on this is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Joe

Ps. Disc brakes are on my wish list for the future.

I think it's a flex line collapse at the rear axle.

Crack open the brake line there at the flex line and press brake pedal if you get fluid then the blockage is the rubber hose going to the axle and it needs replaced.
Thanks, I'll give that a try.
