1973 Ford LTD Repair Question
Have installed new brake shoes on one wheel of 1973 LTD. Some fluid leaked out when I moved boot to check cylinder. Brake line was bled after shoe adjustment. Now pedal goes almost all the way to floor and when pumped goes about 1/4 to 1/2 way to floor.
No brake fluid should have come out. It sounds like you have a bad wheel cylinder. Check it again to see if there is more brake fluid there. If there is, replace the wheel cylinder. If the pedal goes to the floor, either you have a leak or the master cylinder is bad on this vehicle.
