Hi, i'm needing some help with the brakes on an alfa spider i'm rebuilding for a friend.
its had new callipers all around from Biggred, new master cylinder and pipes as well, and new pads.
I have bleed the system several times and have got all the air out.
the rear brakes work when the brakes are applied, but the fronts don't work at all.
I'm thinking if the front re-cond calipers are shagged or the servo isn't working, i've really run out of ideas with it now.
many thanks in advance for some advice.

Is there any form of balancing valve (not sure of the proper term) somewhere in the system that may be blocked up?
Even if the servo isnt working I'd expect to still get some brake effort up front
