Inconsistant Brake Pedal Feel

Recommended Posts

I have a 1977 280Z and I recently did a lot of brake work.  I replaced the rear brake cylinders, shoes, and replaced the rubber lines with steel braided lines.  The issue I am having is whenever I gently press the brake pedal, it goes straight to the floor and the dash brake light comes on.  However, if I jab the brake pedal quickly, the pressure is great and the car stops just fine.  I don't think this is a bleeding issue, so what could this be?  My first thought is that the master cylinder is bad, but is there something else it could be?
