My 92 S10 brakes failed and there was no fluid in the front part of the master cylinder. Is this the front brakes that are leaking? There seems to be a puddle of brake fluid on the right front but too far in back of the wheel to be the brake hose. Any ideas?

Secondly, while my truck was in my garage to be worked on in the warmth, i smelled gas and saw a puddle of gas under the drivers side door. The hose that (i think) comes from the throttle body back to the fuel tank was leaking, seemingly thru the metal fitting that connects the rubber hose to the hard fuel line. It has two hexes for wrenches and can be detached, BUT the rear is a clamp. What to do?

thanks in advance

i located the fuel leak and fixed it. Any ideas on the brakes? Why would the fluid be low in the front compartment of the master cylinder? Are the front brakes leaking?
thanks

i found the leak at the right rear. Brake line rusted thru. Gotta get the bleeder screw out and i can't find the right socket. 7mm is too small, 8mm too large. 9/32 too small, 5/16 too large.
What size do i use?
thanks
