Ok guys I've got this very weird problem :(

Yesterday I tried to bleed the brake system with my father.

In the beginning the brake pedal wasn't coming back automatically when released.

After a while it did and all air seems to be out of the system.
Now the weird part: I hardly get any braking power ... The brake cilinders at the back wheels move a bit but only one side of the drums (the left Side moves a bit).

Any idea what could be the problem here?

Thanks!

Sometimes even a new hose may be bad. If the main cylinder works, then try to find the blocked pipe or hose.

If the break line bleeding processes went fine, is it possible you have a mechanical bind in the shoe pivot or mounting?

I'm a bit concerned about the master cylinder not returning. Even though it's OK now, there may be a problem with it. Did you use the Ate master cylinder kit, the one MB supplies? I've had problems with slight variations in the check valve in the master. Some of these have a small bleed hole in them. My recollection is that the correct one does not. If you got the kit from another source it's possible that it isn't quite right even if it mostly looks right.

I think I'm going to let a more experienced person have a look at it.

If I want to have one thing done correctly it's the brakes.

I'll keep you updated on the solution!

Thanks for your answers!
