it was the master and the line the master was leaking fluid when i to it out and turned it upside down and the line wouldn't close its self off when i disconnected it so i replaced both of them and now im just trying to get it to bleed i tried the bleeding Technic that precision clutch did for 40 minutes with no luck

thank you it has its dings and dents as well as some rust.

i did however finally get around to taking the drivers side step rail off and it has a new exhaust installed nothing major just a simple setup my brake pedal went straight to the floor the other day so i though i busted a line but with no loss of fluid figure its the booster i still have brakes but not a lot.

i found a 97 exploder with a 5.0 I'm hoping to go look/pick up this Friday which will be the start of a long journey

i did have plans to do a diesel swap with this truck however the 5.0 is cheaper and easier :dntknw:
