    Default brake booster removel

    I pull the master cylinder and place it to the side. I have to replace my brake booster on a 1993 Lincoln town car signature sieres.Because when trying to attempt to stop.I have to stand all the way up on the brakes paddle, to give it a complete stop. I was wondering do I have to bleed the full system after I put the new one on


    and how hard is it to swtich an r124 system into a r13 system also switch fuel injection into a carb.

    Hey sk -

    If the hydraulic system wasn't opened, you don't have to bleed the brakes. But, if there is any question or doubt about the brake system (did the pedal feel spongy when it was pushed?), then it can't hurt to bleed the system. Also, new fluid can't hurt either, especially down there in Florida where it's so humid all the time!

    slammedkutty - This is not really for us to say especially when there are so many factors you need to look at when you purchase a vehicle. If a vehicle has been overheated you can expect to find some type of engine damage. Keep in mind what your resources are, abilities and time you have to put towards the repairs.

    Okay I’m eager to learn how to do services work. I want to get my ASE lics really bad. I’m a 27yrs old. I’ve worked in two tire shops my whole time learning how to do services work. I want to be an automotive engineer doing Custom fabrication. Such as hydraulic, air ride suspension, custom auto body, stereo system, and high performance engines building. I’m in the middle of learning how to Arc/mig weld with your book and also taking lessons at a school and at my job

    Ford good or bad cars
