    Well crap. Not having decent brakes really sucks, I went through it with a CJ7 I used to have.

    Yup, it does. I miss driving it, but they are simply not safe. I've just kinda been letting it sit because of the frustration and being tired of throwing parts at.

    On an amusing side note, my wife got in to move it yesterday and almost ran it into the utility trailer. She turned the key without pushing the clutch pedal forgetting it's now a manual.

    Tried bleeding the brakes again today with a pressure bleeder. Prop valve is still gutted, stopping power is still garbage. Going to try another master cylinder next, not sure where else to go with it.

    I really hope the new master cylinder fixes it for you. On the CJ7 I had the apply piston in the power booster was adjustable, having it set wrong led to either brakes that would drag, or a very low weak pedal. I don't know if a stock power booster would have that adjustment, or if adjusting it would help, but it might be worth checking while you have the master cylinder off.

    Thanks for the insight, I'll have to take a look at that.

    I was looking at master cylinders again and the one I purchased last time has had the description changed to read power brakes as opposed to 4 wheel disc. It also lists both ports as being the same size and I'm 99% sure they were different sizes, like the one that came off. Both masters Advance lists have a 1" bore, so no difference there. What a headache this has been.
