The leak is likely coming from the master cylinder where the rod goes into it from the pedal. Pick up a new one, bench bleed, install, and bleed the system. Good luck bleeding those old drum wheel cyls. :frown:

Just look to see what's coming loose in the pedal mechanism and tighten it up if ya can.

I got a new OEM master cylinder from CDAN


You are also lucky enough to own a truck that Toyota still provides product support for in this area….

Hi All:

Since the rig you are working on is a 1964 truck that has sat for awhile, I'd suggest you plan on re-building, and/or upgrading the entire brake system.

Just off the top of my head, here is a plan of action:

1) Swap-in a 1976-84 40 Series disc brake front axle assembly;

2) Swap-in a 1969-84 40 Series rear axle assembly;

3) Perform the popular "Monto Carlo" type rear disc brake swap on the above rearend;

4) Install the master cylinder and brake booster from a '89 Toyota V-6 4WD mini-truck;

5) Very carefully bleed the whole brake system! ;)

If you search through the MUD and LCML archieves you should find lots of info about these brake swaps; very common.

Good luck with your rig!

Regards,

Alan

going to need that little adapter to make the booster work, and fabricate some new brake lines....because of the different size and thread pitch fittings...
