Ken is sending me another master cylinder so I should be good now. I am having trouble getting the brake lines apart. I got them broke loose from the wheel cylinders but the line is stuck inside the nuts. I heated them a little and hit them with penetrating oil so I hope they will come loose soon without braking. I fear that the wheel cylinders will be as bad as the master cylinder was. I hope not but we will see.

I was able to find the stuck spot of the e-brake cable. I oiled it up good and heated it up so that it was warm to the touch. I did this 3 times before it broke loose. Now the e-brake works good.
