so i blew a front caliper on my 85 chevy k3500 diesel flatdeck awhile back and i just replaced all the brakes both calipers , pads and rotors , when i pumped the petal up to tighten the calipers up to the rotors the brake fluid in the master cylinder shot up and hit the hood, at first i though i could have a collapsed line but i seem to be getting fluid down to both calipers , so for some reason i am getting a blowback of fluid im wondering if the master cylinder could be shot?

what do you guys think

thanx

where you bleeding the brakes or just stepping on them. If you have the cap loose or off while stepping on the brakes and then release it will do that.

This is normal on most domestic vehicals, I always put the cap on to prevent the mess......remember brakefluid eats paint.
