On your first press the booster still had vacuum and you typical feel that you required less force and the travel was a bit more. Your second and third should be the same. I suggest before you start it tomorrow morning you check the difference in travel between your first three presses,( do them 2 s...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

I'm always hesitant to bleed brakes on older cars, even more so if you don't know the history. The problem is that when bleeding you all of a sudden use a part of the master cylinder that would not have seen any use it a number of years and any deterioration of that surface could potentially damage ...
