Hey all. I just replaced my MC and bled the brakes per FSM.
1 pump brakes until pressure is released.
2. turn key on
3. Bleed right front with kiddo holding down brake pedal. (Key still on)
4. Bleed left front with kiddo holding down brake pedal. (Key still on)
5. Bleed right rear with kiddo holding down brake pedal. (Key still on)
6. Bleed left rear with kiddo holding down brake pedal. (Key still on).

if anyone has any tips or corrections to my procedure I would greatly appreciate it

so your brakes are just fully on at all times? What does the pedal feel like? Can you hear the pump in the master cylinder running when you turn the car on?

Yes on at all times. If I put the truck in Drive or revers and let off the gas I go nowhere. Pedal is very stiff. Yes pump is working fine

Clevis pin adjusted properly? If the pedal never releases all the way, the brake pressure will not release all the way.
