You disconnect all lines to and from, then unbolt it from the booster. Then you install the new one and hook the lines back up. Then you go buy some brake fluid and bleed all 4 brakes, then fill it up and you are done.
Yeah, that's not the place to bleed the line, you'll still have air from that junction to the brake cylinders. Do you have a service manual for your car? Because I'm not too familiar with the '69 Eldo to tell you exactly where the bleeder screw is. It should be on the back side of where the brake drum is. It does have drum brakes in the rear, right?
No offense... but if you cant even find the bleeder screws im very curious on how your going about "bleeding" the brakes.
'69 Eldo's did not have rear discs yet so you are going to be bleeding a wheel cylinder. There is a junction back there which you bled (somehow ) follow the lines that split off to each wheel. Right above the line where it screws into (ON THE WHEEL CYLINDER) is a bleeder screw...

Re: Master cyl install
The other thing to make sure of when you replace a master cylinder is that the push rod is properly adjusted to the new cylinder. You need the factory shop manual to make this adjustment. In 90% of the times that you are working on the car, the factory service manual will be a great help in saving you time and removes the risk factor of doing more damage than repairs... I have seen many good parts ruined or replaced because of lack of knowledge in determining if the part is good or bad. The service manual will take a lot of that risk out of the equation. It might be the best $25 you will ever spend on that car.... Junk..
