I'm about to pull my hair out with this Dodge, completely new brake system except the prop valve. We can't find a new replacement and I only found one used no warranty $200. I'm sure I can use an after market adjustable unit for a fraction of the price but will it mess up my abs?
The rear line broke thanks to good old Pennsylvania rust. In turn the safety check ball won't reset, tried cracking front bleeders suddenly no luck, tried banging it like works on Chevy's, no luck. I read somewhere about using a pick or wire to manually push the ball back then gravity bleed the rear then when the system is full bleed as normal. Front breaks were excellent until prop was removed. I got tired of chasing problems and it's now been in the shop for going on two weeks. It's going to take months to pay off this bill.....

What problem are you trying to solve? You replaced the rusted out rear lines, but now what is the issue you are having?

It won't bleed because the check ball is stuck, some safety feature so if a line breaks you don't lose your fluid, so I'm told I could be totally wrong. The mechanic said he found one he should be done tomorrow. This brake system has been one thing after another.

That's what I told the mechanic but we had no luck and I guess he had no luck. Should have the Dodge back today then I can pick at this Chevy.
