Re: Master Cylinder Leak and Power Steering!

Brake problem is easy..... master cylinder needs replaced. They used to make rebuild kits, but the whole cylinder is usually pretty cheap. Easy to replace.....

Power steering problem.... pic seems inconclusive.... so I'm no help.... good luck....

Re: Master Cylinder Leak and Power Steering!

I just done a power steering gear box rebuild, it took about 1 day to do. not really hard to complete, you replace the o-rings & teflon rings inside the gear box. I bought the kit from napa for about 60 bucks. works fine now & no more puddle in the drive way
