when I use my front brake it locks up---let it set for a while and it backs off
anyone have any ideas?---have replaced the master cylinder--still does it.

When you replaced the master cylinder, did you flush out the fluid and replace with fresh?

If the hose has separated internally it'll do the same thing. It works like a check valve, the fluid can go one way and not the other.....Mike
