    Exclamation 84 rear brake

    I was out driving yesterday, and about 50 miles into the ride the rear brake was gone. I push peddle and just kept going down. Since I was near where I was going I just was careful and went to destination. As I was getting ready to park, the brake was back! (Last fall I change the brake fluid). I checked the level, it was good and all the way back home 100 miles, brake was as it should.

    Sounds like it needs burped. Move the caliper so the bleeder is at the highest position and see what comes out.

    It took a couple of tries to get my 84 RT right. Start with the simple stuff first.
