Not sure exactly but I love to do stuff like this. First thing I would do is go to a salvage yard and rob the pieces form another truck with power brakes. You know you need the booster and the master cylinder, but you might also need the pedal and the pedal bracket. All the lines and the combo valve and calipers and wheel cylinders should be fine.

I do believe that you will need to add a brake booster to you master cylinder. I'm not sure if you will be able to reuse the master cylinder you had or if you will need one that matches up with the brake booster.

Hope this helps

1988 ford ranger manual truck can not shift

Look and see if there is a second master cylinder under the hood of your truck, near the brake master cylinder, in fornt of the driver's seat.
This would be the clutch master cylinder, and should be slightly smaller than the brake nmaster cylinder.
From your description, that clutch master cylinder may be out of fluid, brake fluid.
Probably your slave cylinder has failed, it is attached to your transmission on the other (lower end) of the brake line from the firewall master cylinder.
Adding brake fluid might get the clutch to work long enough to get your car to a garage or up on some ramps so you can fix it.
Be blessed

1988 ford ranger why is there gasoline in the brake booster.

The brake booster is a vacuum device that store the vacuum pressure (like a small reserve tank).

Brake booster is directly connected to the engine to get the negative pressure.

When the unit age,moisture and vapor check valve will fail.

Collection of water,gas and rust will be inside the booster.

I recommend you to inspect/change all hoses when replacing the booster.

1988 ford ranger push button four wheel drive an it wont engage all the wires are good it just clicks when u push the button.. what should i look for to make the four wheel drive work again it wont...

Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

Brakes not working

You need to adjust the rear brakes and you might have to bleed them out.
