Kinda figure it wasn't a hose/line that blew Adam when you said in your 1st post your brake fluid has been leaking for a few days at a "steady rate". When a hose blows it goes quickly. Glad you have the MC/booster changed out and can get it to that shop for bleeding.

When I twisted the check valve on my booster out of the way for replacing my header that's where I ended up with a vacuum leak and know another where it did the same thing. You wouldn't think a reman booster would leak there but I just ended up putting some RTV around the outside check valve where it meets the metal and problem solved. You're welcome for the advice and good luck!
