Question about Cars & Trucks
There is no way that a booster can be bypassed as it is a vacuum operated unit that supplies extra brake pedal force when the pedal is moved. You can block off the vacuum hose to the manifold but there will be extreme pressure needed to apply the brakes. ( family in a car that cannot be stopped --Really)The only solution really, to be safe, is to have an accredited brake shop where the vehicle is fit a booster to the car

SOURCE: replacing my brake booster
go to the master cylinder and remove it from the booster, disconnect the vacuum line from the booster, then disconnect the brake plunger from your brake pedal inside the vehicle, then remove the booster mounting bolts from inside the vehicle then remove the booster, install in reverse order, once you install the master cylinder, you will need to bleed out any air in the brake system, hope this helps, let me know

could be vacuum pump. check for vacuum at line into booster (should be significant). if not ok, check for vacuum at pump to make sure it is not a line problem. if there is a check valve in the line, ensure it is working.

SOURCE: 96 front passenger side brake
1996 on the master cyclinder the 2 connections are the one in the back part of the master cylinder is the primary circuit that is the front brake section and the one farthest from the back of the rear of the master cylinder is the secondary which will go to the rear of the brakes. Now this is going to look confusing as it attaches to a combination valve,why it is because you have a diaginal split this is design for brake hydraulic failure.Now when you get everything installed make sure you bleed the system. make sure your pedal is firm if it stop funny and the rear lock up reverse it the front is where you want all braking power the rear only slowly engages and not that quick it is designed that way so you stop in a straight position the rear brake keep you straight they dont realy stop the vehicle.
