Hey everyone, i have a 77 Coupe that i posted pics of a while back. Ran into some problems, need a little help perhaps.

I seem to have lost all my braking power. Resevoir is full of fluid, no leaks but the peddle has no resistance and goes straight to the floor stopping the car nothing at all what so ever. Car has been sitting in my garage for like a year this way and i know its something dumb so i need to fix it! :rant2:

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Dennis

Sounds like air in the lines. Bleeding the system should correct the problem. Good luck an let us know what happens.

Is the "Brake" light lit up on the dash?

If bleeding does not cure the problem you will probably have to rebuild or replace the master cylinder. The seals wear allowing fluid past them under pressure thus no braking effort.
Good luck.
