I have a 97 Pontiac Transport and I changed the vacuum booster and master cylindar and lines. blead the system by the book and still cant get breaks unless i pump them. tried everything i can think of.

Did you bleed the master prior to installation? Try opening the bleeder screws and allow the system to gravity bleed then, manual bleed also dont forget to adjust shoes as they can account for low pedal.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

You may have a bubble in the ABS. You can try bleeding there by loosening the lines one at a time, like bleeders. I have read that you might need a special rig to bleed some ABS systems. :-(

What causes the brakes to go out i checked the fluid and it's good my brakes are not working at all

it might be your master cylinder..."my brakes go out" is not the best description. if the pedal feels very soft, or goes all the way to the floor, then its probably the master cylinder. also, if you just had break work done, then its possible that not all the air go blead out of the system. if the breaks are hard to push, then your break booster may have a leak..

I need to change the master cylinder in my fj62 landcruiser and I am not sure how to do it. Looking for help please.

If you want to change break master cylinder,first remove two break pipes then remove four nuts which is holding master cylinder to breake booster.careful breake fluid from the car body and your self.

put the new breake master cylinder tight four nuts, before you fit the braeke pipes get some body who can hold breake bedel down put the breake fluide tell him to pump breake bedel when the brake master take fluid hold your fingers where you want to fit brake pipes when you feel more pressure which is pushing your finger tell him to hold the bedel down while you tighting the pipes.
you dont need to bleade the wheels. it is ready.
the ather thing when you remove the breake master put the new one then fit the brake pipes fil with the breake fluide then bump so you must bleade all wheels

Either your power booster behind the master has failed or the vacuum line or check valve is restricted or leaking.
