Since there is no loss of fluid we can rule out any leaks. A poor booster would make you apply the brake much harder to stop. So somehow you are not developing the necessary pressure for the brakes to function. The pressure is developed by the master cylinder seals. You can get a rebuild kit or a rebuilt master cylinder but the real pain is bench bleeding the new one. Luck to you.

1992 Ford E350-same brake concern, pedal goes to floor! Replaced master cylinder, brake booster, frt pads and rotors. Replaced rear shoes wheel cylinders, and drums, vehicle stops but pedal goes to floor, squeaze off rear flex hose and pedal is solid. Takes 2 > 3 pumps normally to get hard pedal then goes to floor, wouding in longer brake wheel cylinder pins would fix the problem???? P/S hope you can help.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)
