Something is shifting when you slow down.

Eventually, he took the master out to rebuild it, only to find a tiny piece of
from the brake fluid can in the master cylinder. It would occasionally
cover up one of the ports in the master, causing the problem.
A possibility for you?
 A little piece of someting, when you get weight transfer forward,
