Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
Is there a special procedure for bleeding the brakes on this model?
Shouldn't be anything different.
Hydro-boost is different as far as the boost part goes.

To bleed brakes,start with a couple of 8-ounce cans of fresh brake fluid,put the vehicle in the air and take off all wheels.

Please don't forget to rate:
Bleeding The Brake System Bleeding When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or replacement, air enters the lines causing spongy pedal action (because air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is necessary to bleed the hydraulic system to ensure all air is purged.
Always begin bleeding the brake system from the furthest wheel cylinder or caliper from the master cylinder; the right rear.
NOTE: The right side of the vehicle is the passenger side. The sides of the vehicle are determined from the driver's perspective. This reference is taken from sitting in the driver's seat, facing forward.
Maintain a full reservoir during the bleeding operation. Never use brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system, or from an open container, no matter how clean it is. Always use brake fluid from a new, sealed container. The front and rear reservoir will drain as the front or rear brakes are bled.

Honestly your guess is as good as mine. But I don't think the master cylinder is NOT bad you still have air in the system. Get a big bottle of brake fluid bleed all four sides until you run out of fluid or your brakes work properly. You should divide the bottle's content in four, then use each quantity in each side. You'll be removing air and contaminated fluid from the system. Get a small hose that fits on the bleeders and an appropriate container. I have a good feeling if you do this your brakes will work just fine. I don't know how you are bleeding the brakes. I'll let you know the proper way just in case. This is a two man job, with the wheel off, have someone start the car. Have them pump the brakes a few times to get pressure. 1With the brake pedal UP open the bleeder, 2then have your assistant press the brake pedal all the way down and leave it completely pressed down. 3Close the bleeder valve, once close and only with the valve closed have'm release the brake. Repeat as necessary, bake depressed, open valve first then press brake. DO NOT depress until valve completly closed. Close valve THEN depress. Good Luck!

It will take 2 of you. 1 fill up the resevoir.2 you need to open the bleed nipple on the furthest brake from the master.3 have somone pump the brake once then close the nipple have them pump it again and hold their foot down on the brake, while they have their foot down on the brake open the nipple untill all of the air and fluid comes out, then close the nipple. Make sure you keep the resevoir topped up. Do this severel times until only fluid comes out of the nipple. Repeat on all of the wheels. You can buy a kit that pressurises the system so you can do it on your own but they are expensive for a 1 time deal.
