Thanks Don. I did a complete brake shoe and wheel cylinder replacement. I bled the lines and replaced the ones that were leaking. I have good brakes about 80 percent of the time. The other times the pedal will go to the floor with no braking, even after a few pumps of the pedal. I did just get the rebuild kit for the booster and the cylinder. That rebuild will probably be done in a month. I figure if I have to take the engine out then I will replace all the lines in the front and it will be easier to take the power brake unit out with all the extra room.
