    Hee guys! So I've mounted a hydraulic handbrake to my Miata last week and found out the brakes was not respondign properly, it was like the main cilinder was gone. So replaced it but didn't help. Now I've tried to "pump" fluid in and it seems the word a little better on pressure. Tho still bad. I have the idea that the main cilinder isn't big enough to move all the fluid around in one pump. Anny one have ideas? Also. I've mounted the handbrake cilinder upside down so the Brakelines go straight down. Was this a mistake? Is it possible the fluid leaks out back and drains the system?

    System is closed and bleeded properly. No leaks.

    Really hope someone has experience with this.
