    that is an RPO Code, there should be a sticker in the car someplace, usually either in the glove box or under the trunk lid, that will have 50 or so 3-digit codes on it. One of those two codes will be listed, that's the one you need.

    if anyone wants to help me lynch the engineers or whoever was responsible for making my celebrity wagon half metric and half standard, just give me a hollar. i decided to rebuild the entire rear brake system and had no idea the brake lines were metric. like i have a size 12 metric tube wrench. :rolleyes:
    (insert the appropriate amount of expletives here)

    so is a brother who is a machinist. :) he finally found the one wrench that he lost...you guessed it. oh the difference a tube wrench makes. i am still cussing about the mixed fasteners and such on this ride. GM...choose a path, lol.

    now on to the trouble shooting and classroom chat. cylinders on, shoes adjusted and lines bled. i still have some squish in the pedal. my neighbor used to work in a mopar garage and thinks my power vac is going bad. he suspects a vacuum leak of some sort (or perhaps that is part of the power vac failure). when you hit the pedal there is a change in the rpm of the motor.

    ideas and explanations please.
