Does anyone out there have the older Jalpa (mine is #071) that uses the (2) Benditalia Brake boosters?

I've rebuilt mine, but I can't get the brake circuit bled! Is there a trick for the older Jalpa's? I've never had trouble with any of my other cars, getting the brakes bled! ArrgghhH!!

I bled the clutch, to flush with new fluid (I'm using ATE Gold 200). That worked perfectly!

The problem with the brakes is that when I think they are bled, they are locked solid, and you can't turn the wheels unless you open a bleed nipple on any one of the 4 calipers. But, the first time you push the brake peddle, eveything locks up.

I suppose your brake lines are stuck, not uncommon for the age of the car...

Replace them with steal braided lines, much better response.
