Default Mazda 323 P, 1998, JMZBA 2.0 52 kW Diesel - Problem with brakes

Hello everyone!
As i'm in lack of the informations on the internet, i decided to register here and ask some questions.

I have 1998 Mazda 323 P (BA chasis), with 1998cc 52 kw naturally aspirated diesel engine (RF)

The car has problem with brakes, on the brake checking equipment it shows that front left wheel delays one moment after front right wheel, which results in a very unpleasant feeling when braking intensely. Rear wheels brake equally.

I unmounted the problematic brake caliper, cleaned it inside with an extra fine sandpaper (it was already smooth, both piston and cylinder, tho) and replaced gasket and dust protection. After bleeding the system (to remove air)- the problem is still the same.

What i noticed, was that braking liquid shoots much better on the good braking unit, when i bleed it. On this problematic caliper the liquid pours slowly upon pressing the pedal and opening the bleeding screw, and also some low sound can be heard (like there is air inside, but it isn't anymore).

Can it be that comething is clogged? Flexible hose maybe?

Also, overall braking of the car is not satysfing. It has to be better upon intense pressing of the brake pedal. The car has ABS which isn't working (i am not 1st owner so i don't know it's history, like who did what, and so on).

I am suspecting of a bad master brake cylinder, which is story for itself. I have been searching for days already on the internet and just cannot believe that i can't find such part. I have pics of it, and it's nothing alike the stuff i get as the search results. So, if someone can give some advice, i would be grateful!

Default Unequaled braking solved

Haven't been online for a while, but just wanted to say i solved the problem with front brakes not braking equally. The problem was in flexible hose which connects the braking caliper with the brass tube. It got clogged somehow, perhaps due to aging. It was a pain to unscrew the old hose, but there is a way if there's a will

I hope this thread helps someone with similar problem!
