If your wife reacts the same as mine when I ask her to help bleed brakes, the pneumatic setup will be a real blessing! That's the main reason I got mine, but it's way easier than getting help too!

Most master cylinders have 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" total travel.

Thanks,

I'll check my booster and make sure I'm getting that much travel from it first ..

Finally

I put the new master cylinder on and bled the brakes and lo and behold, I have brakes. I must have gotten a ****ty master and it threw me off right from the start. I appreciate everyone that helped me out here, I have learnt a lot about brakes and troubleshooting them now. I just need to get the motor running now but that's getting close as well.

Glad you got it fixed! Been there too where I just didn't want to believe it was something simple, and troubleshot it until I finally found something simple.
