Eleanor has come to us several times for repair

This time she came in for no brakes, no start and running issues

Luke dove right into the master cylinder to fix the problem.

Luke was very careful not to spill any brake fluid on the paint. Brake fluid is not only hydroscopic but also eats away paint.

Here is what is going to fix it. Its the piston cup seals. They were bypassing causing the pedal to slowly sink to the floor.

He pumped all the fluid out of the Wilwood master before he removed it to rebuild it

Then we removed the hidden battery’s and charged them. The charger wont charge a dead battery so we charged a good battery and hooked the others parallel.
