What would you like to do?
Go buy a new master cylinder. Follow the instructuins on how to bench bleed it. Remove the brakelines attached to the old master cylinder. 2 bolts hold the master to the brake booster. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ALLOW TO MUCH AIR IN THE LINE. THAT WILL CAUSE YOUR BRAKES TO BE SPONGY. Reverse the procedure with the new master. Bleed the brakes in order(RR/LR/RF/LF). Once that is done, take the truck out and see if the brakes are tight or soft. If you have to much pedal, go some place where you can back up at 10 or 15MPH and hit the brakes HARD. This will adjust the rear drums. Do this step until your brakes feel firm but not to tight. This is a quick and dirty version of what needs to be done. Get a manual and read up. Explorer4x4.com is a good resource.

Thanks for the feedback!
you have to have a small chisel or a screw driver and a hammer to take off the two bolts that is holding down the key cylinder. those bolts does not have a head like ordinary …bolts have. angle the chisel so that it would bite a little of the head. gently tap the chisel going counter clockwise. be careful on the chisel not to take the whole head of the bolt, because you will need them to put the new key cylinder back on. good luck.

Answer there is a thing called a RABS valve in your braking system. this is located on the inside of the chassis rail ,on the left side of vehicle about level wit…h the front of the front door. this valve must be bled properly before the rest of the sytem is bled. there is a proper sequence to bleed this.the sequence can be found in a chiltons shop manuel ,or take it to a mechanic that knows what he is doing.

you can buy a rebuild kit at your local parts store but it is usually cheaper to just replace the master cylinder!

On a 93 ford tempo master brake cylinder are the front brakes controlled by the lines on the bottem of the master brake cylinder or the sides?
. If you have the 4-port master cylinder, the bottom ports go to the rear brakes & the upper side ports go to the front brakes.
