Default Got Brakes

Well we finally figured it out, purely by accident.It seems the Russell ss braided front brake lines were somehow damaged at one point and the .086 dia hole in the end fitting was crimped almost shut on both sides. In a desperate move I took off the two hoses and had new ones made up at a local hose shop. They caught the problem when they pressure tested the two lines. We think that maybe who ever worked on the front brakes in the past did not support the calipers when they were removed for whatever reason causing the ends to collapsed. I installed the two lines bled both sides and now I have brakes. Who would ever thought????? Now it's fun to drive the Snake again. Thanks to everyone who contributed to help solve this problem.
