Default Still mushy.

Hi y'all. Number 1 son brought home an '88 BII 4x4. Brakes feel mushy, so we bleed all 4 corners today. Still mushy. Has new master and booster, and some other new looking parts. Makes me feel I'm walking in somebody's footsteps. It does get good pedal after a few pumps. PO rescued it from somebody's backyard, so it sat for a bit. Thoughts?

Look at the entire system for leaks. Most likely would be the wheel cylinders for the back brakes.

Might also be that the master cylinder was not bled properly when it was replaced.

How did the fluid look? If it looked old you should flush it out.

If no leaks, maybe there's still air in the system.
