The mechanic pressure tested the system and found a leaking rear brake line.
We couldn't see any dripping or leaks when it was up on the hoist.
I've never seen a brake system pressure tester.
Anyone know how this device works?

Line routing

leaves the master cylinder to a block on the left frame rail that feeds the left front wheel and continues to the right side of the car.
Another block feeding the the right front and continuing to the right rear frame rail to 'right of center' of the differential.

The left rear brake line is about 3' long vs the passenger side 18"

Even with the disc brake conversion lines----the rear line runs parallel to the front lines to the passenger side.
