Hyster J40XMT:
hyster j40xmt

So I have this hyster come in for breaks adjustment. It's an electric with 2 drive motors. I went to adjust the brakes and found the rotors worn out. So I disconnected the brake line and pulled the calipers,replaced the rotors put new brake pads on hooked up the brake lines. I hooked up my brake bleeder to the top bleeder ports and try to bleed the brakes I'm getting some brake fluid but not a solid stream of fluid. The master cylinder seamed to be ok when I got the truck but my pedal is still soft. Any help?

yep sometimes bleeding the air out of the system can be tricky
like mrfixit said
reverse bleed the system
if you have a pressure bleeder you can use that to assist in the bleeding too.

You've been swooped!
Not sure how your brake bleeder works but sometimes you have to push fluid up from the bleeder ports on the calipers to the master cylinder to get the air out. A clean pump and squirt oil can with a hose connecting to the bleeder nipple works good.
