Question: Do you have to bleed the master cylinder by itself when you are changing your brake lines and disconnect the master cylinder? We just removed the master cylinder when we did the brake booster swap (and new rotors and brake lines) and then filled it up after it was installed, and bled the brakes as normal. The brakes seem to be fine but I am not sure.

Went and had the master cylinder checked for air and it is fine. So I guess that if you are doing a complete brake job (starting with empty lines) that you do not need to bleed the master cylinder before bleeding the rest of the system.

if you didn't remove the brake lines from the master you should be fine... what wheel sequenace did you use to bleed each wheel?

We removed the 2 brake lines from the master to the ABS... installed the brake booster, installed the master, installed new brake lines, calipers and pads. Then we bled from the farthest point to the closest point.
