If was something he did, it would have been evident immediately.

New issue. Could be a failed booster. Get it checked.

Thanks Roy, it was questionable because after all parts were replaced, had to go back and have brakes adjusted. Was a different mechanic and was not pleased with having to return a second time. Now a third time. Was not sure if it was master cylinder or booster and if it was something overlooked. Now I know I do not have to blast this guy who is a relative.
