Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

Change the master cylinder on your booster. had the same problem with early 90's ford ranger. The pistons inside the master cylinder are probably worn...... Make sure to bench bleed the new master cylinder....

Could be booster, chk. vacume from engine to booster, usely when that happends you have lost vacume to the booster, very seldom does the booster go out, I'am not saying they don't, its just seldom they do. Do you hear a hissing sound either from under the hood or under the dash above break peddel? If you do you got a major vacume leak,if you hear it comming from under the dash its the booster, if you just hear it under the hood its in the vacume line from engine to booster.

it could be that the master cylinder is bad or the brake booster is bad also check the vacum hose going to the brake booster if it has a hole in it it will lose pressure and make the engine lose rpms
