    Hit a Wall on this air leak problem?

    I believe it is the Brake Pedal Treadle venting till my 3 Tanks are empty over night? I have a hard time following long explanations of a repair due to my old age?? A picture of what I am getting into would be nice. I think it is the part operated by the Brake Pedal just behind it. Sure as heck...
