You can block the pedal overnight, it forces the air back through the master cylinder.

It was about the only way you could even get a brake pedal on the old Simca 1501s in the '70s Pressure bleeding didn't work with them.

PS the brake lights need disconnecting as they will stay on.

Off to Automark Monday so hoping he can have a go at them before he does the live mapping. Fingers crossed. Also bought some better pads (DS2500) that worked substantially better than standard ones on the old set up..
