SOURCE: pedal goes to floor on 92 F250
I would strongly recommend checking your trucks R.A.B.S. (Rear Antilock Brake System) valve . It is located on the left frame rail just under where your left foot would rest . They can leak internally and exhibit the problems you are describing (loss of pedal , with no fluid loss) .
It is highly unlikely that a power booster would cause this , as a failed booster will show itself in these ways . 1) a hissing sound when you apply the brakes (indicates a vacumm leak) 2) rough engine idle/stalling when brakes applied (also indicates a vacumm leak) or 3) No power assist (brake pedal hard to push) .
If you do discover your hydraulic problem is in your RABS valve , don't forget to bleed it ,(there is a bleeder valve on it) and the rear brakes again after you replace it .
Hope this helps

Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

check your brake booster and also make sure the rear shoes are adjusted up where they belong. If they are not adjusted up the brake pedal will go farther and farther toward the floor and get spongier as they go farther out of adjustment. If you adjust them up and they back down again change your self-adjusters and springs. They are readily available at your local parts store.

If your rubber brake lines are from the factory those hoses can stretch when the brakes are applied. This same thing happened to me. I replaced the master cylinder, with little to no change. So then I changed the brake booster. And if you read the fine print if either the brake booster or the master cylinder go bad it can take the other with it. So if the rubber brake lines don't fix this I would look at replacing both the master cylinder and the brake booster at the same time. But if you would like to trouble shoot this issue a bit more you can clamp off just the rear brakes or just the front brakes or even clamp off 3 of 4 or if it might be a issue before it even hits the brakes them self you can clamp off all 4 of the brakes to see were the problem is. This is to test fewer components at once and to see if the issue is with the cylinders / calipers or hoses. This will help you determine the location of the problem faster and with out throwing parts at your truck and hopping it fixes the issue.
