Angry 69' camaro master cly. problem

I have a 69' Camaro that keeps destroying master cylds. I have gone through 3 of them in the past 4 months. My car is equiped with power brakes, but my Cam does not produce enough vacum to rum them properly. I have asked many people, and they all tell me that this should not cause any problems other than having to put some extra pressure on the pedal to stop. It's really gettin old changin the damn thing every 200 mi. or so. If anybody has some helpful input, please share it with me. Thanx.

I would suggest buying a NEW one. A good quality one ...... not a cheapie.

Also.... there is a electric vaccum pump that you can buy for cars that does not have enough vaccum to run the brakes. It it designed for that purpose Much safer !

Vacuum should have no bearing on destroying the master cylinder,if the rod from the pedal to the master cylinder is installed in the wrong hole on the pedal,the rod would be hitting on the rear of the master cylinder when the pedal is depressed,I have seen this problem on Chevelles when going from non power brakes to power brakes.
