Brake fluid coming from weep hole next to mounting bolt?

.

Hello Everyone

I noticed today that the 81 300D was leaking break fluid out of a small hole in the master cylinder near the back mounting stud where it connects to the break booster.

The hole looks like the small weep hole that you usually see in a water pump.

What the heck does this mean?
The bearings are worn on my master cylinder ???

Thank You
RichC

it means the oring in the MC is bad and leaking... time for a rebuild/replacement MC...before you loose your booster!

This can be caused by running a piece of fence pipe for an for an exhaust any extended period of time.

Or, perhaps running wvo... I bet that's what caused it.

Congrats on the marriage BTW.
