77 ford f 150 brakes Sign In

hello.
i just bought a 1977 ford f 150 and at first the brakes had pressure when you push the pedal but now it goes all the way to the floor. she still stops but you gotta really anticipate your stops. i bled the brakes as a first troubleshooting. one person says its the booster and another says its just the master cylinder. i'd like to know which before i buy one. thanks in advance!

Did the bleeding make any difference?
Have you lost any fluid?

The bleeding did not make any difference at all. used to i could pump them a bit and get a little pressure but nothing anymore. i haven't lost any fluid as far as i can tell. i topped it off when i bought it and when i bled them. other than that it stays full.

It doesn't sound like any kind of hydraulic issue. it could be the vacuum booster although the symptoms don't make it seem likely. You just need to have the system inspected, including removing all 4 wheels to look for the problem. It could have dropped an adjuster or something.
