No I did not bleed the master, I have never done this when I have swapped a master from one vehicle to another. I guess I should have. I will be needing to buy a new power brake booster and master cause they have become ruined in the rain sitting outside. I will bleed the master for sure.

Can you elaborate on the master size issue as well, again I have posed all of these questions on another forum and I am amazed that you guys have had so much to say that actually is making sense and helping.
