@Mustang5L5 , Im tearing all this down and since going this far, Im gonna replace the master cylinder again, its all rusted up and messing with my head anyway from a clean up the engine bay standpoint, so which brand you like for that? I know they mostly same but whose? I'll then coat it in clear paint to stop the surface rust.

Less that 10 miles on this MC.

I'd probably go with a Reybestos unit. It's what I've run on my car and I've had no issues.

I'd swap that MC out too as well. That's just....wow.

PV is off. I believe the rear and nearest ports are for the front brakes. I'll read up above about inspecting and rebuilding. I have also attached a picture of the booster... it's had better days eh?

Hmm...did you have a leak? That booster looks like it's been seeing brake fluid.

If brake fluid seeps inside the booster, it can degrade the rubber and cause it to fail over time.
