What would cause the brake pedal to drop when the engine is started
After replacing the master cylinder on a 66 T Bird the brake pedal now goes to the floor
when the engine is started, this must be an issue with the booster
did u bleed the brakes?
Check all your vacuum lines to the booster. There is probably a "Y" connector and one line may be off or loose.
What ended up being the problem? I have the same issue. Thanks
65 &6 have two different connectors to the booster. one is a "Y" and the other is just a straight through. Be sure to listen to you engine when it starts and see if you can hear a hissing sound. That would be a vacuum leak somewhere.
