poor braking

Model: 911 s, Year:1977, Mileage:120000, Type of use:Street use only
The braking in my car seems to have deteriated to a point where I would consider it poor. There is lots of brake pedal pressure, all pads and rotors seem to be in good order but when I press down on the pedal, it seems that the car is not stopping as it should.The brake fluid has not been changed since I have owned the car ( 15 years ) could this be the issue.( I have tried to deglase the pads, did not do much )Thanks, Angelo

bleeding brakes

Vehicle Information: Year: 1977; Body Type: Coupe;

I am using a pressure bleeder (Motive Products) to flush/bleed the lines on my 911S after rebuild. I have done this before on other cars but am new to Porsche. When applying pressure the fluid merely comes out an overflow tube. Should I have all the bleeder screws open when flushing the lines, which seems counterintuitive? Is there a trick or something I'm missing? e.g. brake pedal position?Thank you for answering my dumb question.....Doug

sc brakes

Would like to put c2 calipers on front with 3.2 carrera rotors all around with carrera calipers on rear. The difference in thickness 24.0 mm carrera rotor to the 28 mm c2 rotors on front affect the c2 calipers. Thanks Steve
