Hi there It sounds like air trapped inside the Master Cylider bore? As I mentioned I always use braided hoses on my fun cars and to date have had no problems. Like water, brake fluid is incompressible, meaning that it will never take up less space under pressure only one gallon of fluid will fit into a one-gallon jug , whereas air under pressure compresses into a smaller volume.
If it does, you might as well just replace the dual cylinder with a single.

Having said that a lot of comments I have read state that failure is not obvious and that the Teflon fails quicker than the rubber alternatives. Release cutting brake handle. I have tried opening the left hand front and the two rears to relieve any remaining back pressure but with no change. Having owned a 1967 Midget with a single line system I came to the conclusion that this so called improvement to a dual line circuit was more pain that it seemed worth.DIY: How to Bleed Brakes Using a Vacuum Pump
