Question about 1968 Ford 12 M
The vehicle is a 1930 ford Model A street rod.....has 4 wheel drum brakes..I had to fill in your boxes for make and year..which are incorrect,,the car is a street rod..Ford Model A 1930
1930 model a has mechanical brakes they never stopped that great but the application arms should not push pass 1.5 inches and less than 90 degrees . each brake shoe has its own adjustment very technical to adjust suggest a good book and understanding on brakes before attempting repairs.

You are correct in the assumption that the power assist is the problem. The brake booster has either failed completely or has a broken vacuum line. Please check that the booster lines are intact and if so, get yourself a new booster.

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

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...;-)
