Re: master Cylinder

When that happened to me it was a split line, with the split up very near the master cylinder. MC was fine.

Same here. I did get a good low milage master Cylinder online just in case but a new line fixed it. I installed the MC as it was almost new & kept mine as a backup.

Re: master Cylinder

Be careful on one that old with a new MC. It could rupture the old line. Highly recommend you replace those lines with new or after market. Steve Rowe lost a good LT with a new MC that ruptured the rear line. It is amost 10 years old.
