RE: [DML] Brake question



Byron,
As the booster gets older the seal begin to fail. We rebuild the with new
seals and warranty them for 5 years.$125.00.  Normally if the brakes are
hard to push down it's the booster. But if the brakes are soft and they take
a pump or to, to pump up then it's the master cylinder. Real easy to change.
I sell new ones with a 5 year warranty for $79.00.

But, Before I would replace it, I would replace the master cylinder which is
real easy to replace and it can be done

Dear forum members, when I step on the brake pedal, it feels as thou
the pedal has too much play before making contact with the brakes.
Maybe 4"-5". The brakes do not feel different when I pump them.
I brought it to a nearby brake shop; but am leary to have them touch
the car. I get the confused look; and my feeling is to just drive
away.
Dave Bauerle recently worked on the car and suggested it may be the
master cylinder. I would like to get this fixed in a suburb Detroit
area. Is there a formal way of explaining whats going on with my
brakes with a local brake shop? The last shop said " I don't know what
the pedal is supposed to feel like". Could it be more than just the
master cylinder, maybe the brake power booster?
If both items need to be replaced, should I order every gasket and
connection piece associated for the removal & installation?

Thanks for the help.

Byron
