Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

Brake diagram for a 1998 ford ranger w/o cruise

Does the peddle feel very hard to depress if so that line is the vacuum for the booster if your taking about the actual metal brake lines they are the rear line is for the rear and the front is the front if you drive the truck you will ruin the master cylinder because you will be pulling air into the system unless it's really blocked off to not let any air in but you can drive it using the emergency brakes if you have good coordination but be careful why not call a friend or a taxi or some parts stores deliver that's much better then high risk of accidents and chance taking

My 2013 Ford F-150 xlt crew cab 3.5l just lost brakes completely . The pedal went right to the floor so i pumped them which didn't help at all luckily ebrake worked and I shifted into manual

You need to look at the master cylinder. There are two fluid chambers that should have BRAKE fluid in them. Level should be at least half full. If both chambers (reservoirs) have fluid in them then the master cylinder itself is faulty. Its nothing but a foot actuated pump and it has o rings inside that can fail. sometimes it can Be an intermittent problem....change it...however If there is no fluid in the reservoirs a fluid line going to the brakes is most likely leaking. FYI there are two chambers so that if a line leaks you still have 1/2 of your brakes working. My best guess is your master cylinder is no good. Good luck and don't (cheep) on your brakes.

Do you have to remove brake lines when you change the brake booster

Check rear of Master Cylinder--If wet likely Master Cylinder Leaking and Booster Damaged. They Should be replaced as a mated pair. (for warranty) and brake lines removed and system bled.

After bleeding the brakes on my 84 mustang I noticed that one of the bleeder screws was not tight and fluid spilled out on the driveway. I tightened the screw and re-bleed the brakes but, the peddle goes...

Yes and No...Replacing the master cylinder is a good idea, however, giving the vehicle that much pressure with old lines attached may blow out the old rusted lines. If you are going to replace the master cylinder, you may just want to replace the brake lines as well.

The LF and RR are in an independent circuit of the RF, LR wheels. The master cylinder already has the lines hooked up in a way that if you trace the lines, you can make your own diagram.

I need a break line diagram for 1995 ford countur

It doesn't connect to master cylinder. The line should connect to a proportioning valve, then from valve to master cylinder.Star at master cylinder and follow lines to proportioning valve.

The master cylinder brake lines broke before the proportion valve

Obviously you have a bunch of badly rusted lines. Better they failed while you were working on them rather than driving down the road! Carefully inspect the remainder of the lines and if in similar condition to the ones that failed, you need to replace them. When finished and system is tight, then bleed out system. (check it twice to ensure all air is gone.)
