    Hope Mini lever problem .......Help Please

    Decide to bleed brakes this morning. Connected the Hope bleed ktit( the one with the schrader valve). Starts leaking at the master cylinder. torque screwa as mush as I dare.

    Notice nothing coming from the bleed screw. Squeeze the lever a couple of times. Still nothing......

    Disconnect at the caliper and still nothing......

    Disconnect at the lever and still nothing......

    Disconnect entire system, sit down and start cussing.

    Call the group and tell them to go ahead without me. It has been 5 weeks since my last ride due to work and cleaning up after Hurricane Ivan. I have atrip coming up to the Moab Festival in a few weeks. If I cannot fix it by then, I hope they have a dealer up there.

    Thanks all,

    One other thing.....

    When the line is disconnected from the lever and I pull it, there seems to be hardly any air coming out. I know the space is small, but surely I should be able to feel something.

    Taking out the deflector plate, I can see 2 small holes at the bottom of the master cylinder. I can also see the piston sliding back and forth after squeezing the lever in the hole closest to the lever. Is the front hole suppose to be blocked ?? It seems to be blocked and I could not push anything through it.

    FYI....
