Sounds like your brakes are broken!

Yes, that's master cylinder failure. If it has to break that's the next best place. The best is at the shop jus after you stopped there.

Ok, I'm not the best when it comes to spelling either, but some things bother me, don't know why, but you BREAK a stick, but you apply your BRAKES. Just an old grouch at the controls this morning, my back hurts

Happy Trails

A complete fluid change and replace all the flex lines as they are known to cause problems when they get old.

Once I got started it was ok about an hour's time on master cylinder.

It's all done replaced Master Cylinder Bleed lines. I drove it around today 60 miles or so stops well, took it to get it weight today 9500.00.

There are some things you would need to do like bench and bleed your master cylinder before you install it.
I have worked on cars and trucks when I was younger. a lot of it came back when I got started.
the line’s are the hard part don’t cross thread them that will end your day.
