WooHoo!! Master Cylinder was shot. Quick fix and back on the road. Bleeding caused quite a scare, pretty rusted zert and was afraid of snapping it off. Letting it soak in WD40 for a while and with a little TLC, broke free. Can[t believe the difference. And I have to admit, killed the engine the first time I tried to go!! Dang thing catches immediately when letting the pedal out! Also, no more of those little grinds when shifting gears, everything is so smooth!
Thanks for your help.
