Pedal bleeding or vacuum bleeding? If pedal bleeding, did you bench bleed the master?

If vacuum bleeding, make sure all connections are not sucking air. This has given myself and a couple others issues in the past. The vacuum will be lost at the bad seal point and may not have enough left to pull fluid out of the cylinder. If this is the case you might wake up tomorrow with a puddle somewhere after gravity has a bit more time to work its magic.

Port location shouldn't affect the ability to bleed the system but may change the overall performance if all 4 corners are pulling from the same piston travel section. Assuming you are using 1 forward and 1 rearward port and block the others you should be fine.

Pretty sure the master is bad. Push rod length fine, I think the master is bad and I may be leaking at some compression fittings. Bench bleeding doesn't seem to flow much fluid.

Good except for stopping since I don't have a brake controller in it.

60 on surface roads, 65 on highway with cruise set. Averaged 11 mpg.

The wife laid into it pretty hard trying to earn her 1%er rating lol. The ori's are awesome to the least. I built my rear shaft to short at 2 am this morning so I had to use a ratchet strap to limit the rear travel. Still flexed awesome with it limited a lot.

But all in all being fresh out the box it ran and did very well.
