Its as if air is getting in some where . Connections all seem good and dry, been keeping the reservoir topped up while bleeding. Pedal has more travel than previously, but does go firm , pumping pedal doesnt seem to have any effect which i would have expected with air in the system
All was fine before I started!
any thoughts as to where to look please?
If you think about it the bleed nipple is not at the top of the circuit, therefore you have to force air down, it doesn't like doing that.
I have tried pressure systems over the years but they only work on disks in my opinion.
You need to pump 8-10 times then release the nipple. Do that as few times and then return to fast down, tighten and slow up.

Would tapping the hard lines gently help loosen any air bubbles clinging on to the side walls and help them along?

It served and continues to serve it's purpose when I upgraded from single circuit brakes.
