Could be a plugged break line

Sounds like the master cylinder is bad and needs to be replaced leaking past seals

I took the master cylinder out. The piston is fully extended. The fluid in it was a dark brown. I'll be getting a new one in the am. I'll upload you when I do. By the way... I did check the break lines.. that are all clear.

I changed out the master cylinder. Then bleed the breaks with a $30 bleeder kit. I have breaks, however they seem a bit soft yet. Not dangerously soft, but soft. I bleed them twice. I might have to try it again.
