    Hey all,

    The brakes on the 76’ (power) Maverick are laying down. It’s losing fluid between the M/C and booster. Even when you pump the brakes, it loads up briefly and then goes away. I assume a new M/C is the answer, the lines look good.

    Yep, fluid coming out the back is a bad cylinder.

    Probably should change the booster also. Brake fluid usually ruins them.
