RESETTING DUAL MASTER CYLINDER

1987 Ford Ranger

Brakes problem
1987 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 67000 miles

I had a rear brake failure, and I have now repaired the problem. However now I still have no rear brakes and the Brake Warning Light is on all the time. I suspect that the problem is in the dual master cylinder and I have no idea how to determine if it is working right or if it needs to be reset after the failure. And if it does need reset how do I do it?

DID U BLEED THE SYSTEM

U need to bleed the system get the air out
have a helper pump the brake and then hold down u open the bleeder
repeat until brake fluid flow with out any air
and u have a good brake paddle
make sure u stop and check the fluid in the master every few pumps
dont let it run out of brake fluid
good luck
