    Must be blocked i took the line completely understand off the master cylinder and no fluid comes out when i pump it, if there was a problem with the vacuum setup then would that make the brakes play up aswell given there on the same vacuum line because the brakes are fine?

    If it is gunked up that badly, maybe it is time for a new system, or a good one from the wreckers.

    Would be solving your master cyl prob first up.

    As mudnut suggested:
    maybe it is time for a new system, or a good one from the wreckers
    Anyway remove your master cyl have a good look then decide on replacement.

    Remove it from the car , trying not to move the push rod that comes throuh the fire wall , remove the circlip that holds the piston in , take the piston out , chances are its fubar and filings off it are blocking the bleeder , buy new master and slave ( as it will probably poop it self soon ) and a new flex hose ,prime and fill the master on the bench before fitting ,then bleed the system at the slave , and done for the next 10 - 15 years . Did mine last week .

    Having no direct experience with your veh so info provided for thought.

    All this brown like gunk in the housing that where you are supporting the push rod, is it moisture ingress mixing with brake fluid? If so, it appears your master cyl piston is gone or maybe it is some old grease / moisture mix . The rod wobbling around is more than likely behaving that way as it provides a means for it to allign for assy and operation.

    Look, it is a bit hard to see bore condition but really it is probaly getting past it so might be easier and cheaper in the long run to buy that new master and slave cyl (trouble free for a while). What ever way you choose flush your lines with new fluid prior to hooking up to slave. Gunk and moisture is more than likely to be in the line.
