Thanks to all of you who responded to my question last week about my failin=
g master cylinder.  I replaced it and bled all 4 wheels.  However, on the r=
ear driver side, the line bubbled and foamed no matter how much I bled.  Af=
ter noticing that I had good "pedal" I gave up.

Now, four days later, my pedal started to sink and after two more days I wa=
s back to pumping 3-4 times before I got any braking action.  The differenc=
e now, is that after I pump it up, the pedal does not sink as before.

I just bled that back wheel again and I continue to get foaming fluid out o=
f the wheel cylinder.  Can the wheel cylinder be the problem?

Thanks again,
