Brakes locked up (Rear). After truck cooled down we were able to drive it (4) mile home. Inspection reveals the BRAKE VACUME BOOSTER was half full of gasoline. All the locals are scatching heads & saying "that ain't possible". Well the proof is in the garage.

Any ideas?
Do you

I pulled the fuel injector rail and all 6 injectors. There was no problem with the injectors, coils or "O" Rings. However I did find a ruptured diaphram on the fuel pressure regulator, (confirmed by use of a vacume pump). Can't explain why it ran so good but the entire vacume system was drawing gasoline from this one source. The booster was just the largest container in the system, so it showed up there. A lot of head ache and $200.00 +/- (parts) later the Ford lives. Thanks goes to everyone who scratched thier head. This was a unique problem, yet so simple. The moto here is, Every problem has an answer, some are just harder to find.
