Having problems with your 1989 Lincoln Town Car ?
Removed the master cyllinder to replace the valve cover gasket and refilled the brake reservior. need to get full pedel
Bleed the brakes. Make sure the master cylinder is full. Have someone pump the pedal about 7 times then hold the brake pedal to the floor. then open the brake bleeder to release the air. Repeat this process untill you get a steady stream of brake fluid keeping the master cylinder full. Start with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (right rear) then left rear, front right then left front.
