Hello! I have a 1975 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe 460 cui. I have a problem with brakes. It started with low steering pump fluid (leaky steering gear) but when I added fluid brakes started to make problems. Pedal woul just slowly go to the bottom when depressed and brakes wouldn't work. Only if i press the pedal quickly I get the pressure and the car brakes. So, sometimes it works, sometimes the pedal goes to the bottom... Is it the master brake cylinder?
So, when replacing the master cylinder... is it the standard bleeding prescedure afterwards or is there some special Lincoln procedure since it is obviously a not-standard pressure system that connects steering gear and brakes to the steering pump (Hydro boost)?
