^8 mustang brake problems need help!

I have a 68 with power front disc brakes, rear drum. It was orginally a 4 wheel manual drum car. I have converted it all over with the correct Ford parts. Pedal support, brake pedal, master, booster, switch, the whole 9 yards. My problem is that the brakes are way tooo sensitive. I mean, if I was to stop with moderate pedal pressure, I would go through the windshield. I have to just touch them to stop normal. The other problem is that by doing this, stopping with very little pedal pressure, my brake lights do not go on. I can also sit at the light and they will not be on, but I have the power assist holding the car. If at the light, I step on them a little more, they will go on. It is the correct switch, and it has been changed twice. My gut feeling is that if the brakes were not as sensitive, everything would be ok. It would cause me to push a little more to stop, and to hold it at the lights. What would make them be sooo sensitive? Any help or answers anyone has will be greatly appreciated.
