ANY IDEAS GUYS! <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

You know at the least that the master cyl is leaking, so you need to repair that. I would also check the brake booster to make sure it's still holding a vacuum. Any Toy repair manual can tell you how to test the booster. They all work the same way.

Your master cylinder is leaking into the booster which is your first problem. Second, the booster is now contaminated with brake fluid which is not good for the diaphram. Definately rebuild or replace the master cyl. then remove your booster and rinse the inside with soap and water solution. Brake fluid is water soluable. I use simple green when I try to save boosters. Give it a shot if it's not too late.
