To late today, tomorrow I'll go check how it's hock up on my car and take some good pictures for you. You have disk on front ? Did you bleed them after your install ? Mines a Hrust line lock too. Sounds like you need the bleed the master cyl. Let me research it further. Then maybe I'll call and go over everything with you.

But what would help is detail description of exactly what you did might help me diagnose what the problem is.

But it sounds like with that line leaking the master cyl may have lost its prime and got some air in it.

Just came back from Boston hospital and I'm mentally drained.

Did you bleed the brake system after you installed the line lock?

ok, Ive bleed brakes all around 3 times with my brother-n law. Never ran out of fluid. checked every time i bleed brakes. Im getting a clicking noise from the selenoid. Im ok there. Mounted selenoid on inner fender. Took both left & right front brake line off combination valve. Installed a T ,at bottom of selenoid and ran both lines to it. Front of combination valve,1 port on top and one port on bottom. Bottom line i closed off with a plug and top port that went to drivers side brakes i ran to top of selenoid. Directions say to run top to the master cyclinder, maybe because im running to the drivers side brake port may be the problem??????? Will be making up a drawing.
