i wouldnt call this embarrasing. you really didnt throw parts at it. just replaced what needed to be replaced. or would had to be done sooner or later.
i didnt see it mentioned. was all brakes bled? for air?
Thanks for your kind words. The master cylinder irks me a bit, as it wasn't the problem and could have waited, but you're correct. With the scale starting there, it would have come up sooner or later.
I doubt the front brakes were bled. I don't think anything was done to the front brakes, except for a visual inspection. The master cylinder would have been bled when it was replaced no doubt. Both rear brakes were bled when the leaking line and wheel cylinder were replaced.
Do you think bleeding the front would have any effect on which rear wheel locks first? Without another truck just like this one to test drive, I'm guessing that the point at which the rear wheel locks up is normal. It's just curious that it's always the same wheel. The one that it has been regardless of how much pedal it took. It just seems to take a normal amount of pedal before it happens now.

Nope. No twisted rubber lines. Thanks for playing Hank! As a consolation gift, we have some delicious Rice-A-Roni! "The San Francisco Treat"!

Thanks for your thoughts Hank!
