More quick questions...

All right, you guys have been very helpful, but I've got more questions..easy ones though.

I'm trying to determine why my master cylinder is covered with brake fluid. My pedal feels fine, and I stop fine too, Could my master cyl. cover be leaking this badly? Is this a common thing?

Also, I think my catalytic conv. is toasted, is it ok to run without it? My state has no emissions law. I heard that a lack of exhaust back pressure can burn valves...or something like that. Can I just cut my cat. off and put a pipe in its place? I just wanna rig something for a little while 'til I can get some cash to replace the entire exhaust.

Thanks,

Tim

[/ QUOTE ]1. Yes, from the top of the cover...
2. No, it's not a good thing.
