Cheap new parts don't necessarily work. Cheap remans don't necessarily work. One time I installed an SD master without bench bleeding. I expected pressure bleeding to take care of it. I ended up pulling it off and bench bleeding then power bleeding the entire system.

The pedal didn't feel completely right until I set all wheels on the ground and went for a drive. Brokers still work perfectly. The MC was new from this site back when Roy still took care of things.
I always bench bleed all MC as a standard procedure. This was a new one that was not rebuilt. The one I rebuilt was and is working as it should. I must have had some water vapor in the system left over. I replaced all the line and rebuilt the calipers so the system was open for a few daysl

Its now working as it should after another bench bleed and system flush.
