Ford question

My friend has a 69 Torino with a 351 Windsor 2 bbl. The car runs really well idles good and smooth and no miss but just today he found that when he is waiting at a light the car begins to buck and eventually stall but starts right back up and continues to run fine but then another light holding the brake it happens again. I checked for vacuum leaks and found none at least in the obvious places. Could the brake check valve on the brake booster cause this or am I missing something. He just just put in a set of plugs about a month ago is there some ford specific thing to look for? Please help me out here. Thanks.

Try blocking the vacuum source for the booster and try it again (in the driveway).

Ok guys we worked on it tonight . I replaced the check valve. But I think the brake booster is bad . The pedal goes to the floor when the car is running and stays there after turning the car off the pedal comes back up am I correct in thinking it is the booster ? I dont think its the master becasuse it dosent come back up. Also when I was looking for the booster online I found two one says with midland booster what is that? Also why does the clamp band matter (it lists with and without that too) I am sorry for all the questions but I am not too familiar with Fords.

There were two vendors for the booster. They are trying to identify which one you have.

I have the new booster on the way it should be here on Mon or Tues. my next ques is how do you bleed the master on that car. There is a little bleeder screw right on the master do you open that with it installed on the car and bleed it with the pedal? Or do you put it in the vice and bleed it the normal way then quickly bring it over to the car and install. Thanks .

couple tip- m/c will nearly bleed itself,you may have to stroke a few times.Be sure to measure depth m/c hole.adjust rod end to make same.Install- then 1 at time bleed m/c connections.most of the time I don't have to bleed w/cyls

There is a fairly cheap kit available that allows you to bleed the MC either on the bench or car. It has two rubber hoses that shoot the fluid back into the reservoir.
