1978 F-150 Brakes - PLEASE HELP

The brake pedal is very hard. I have changed out the master cylinder, and
now the brake light keeps coming on. How can I tell if I need to change
out the power brake booster? If so, how do I i get it off? I removed the 4
bolts, but I can't seem to get past the linkage.

You mean you cant get the linkage from pedal loose?

Do you have a book? Check used bookstores, ebay.

Look at where the booster linkage attaches to the brake pedal. Remove the
retainer clip and slide it off. Simple as that......

Re: 1978 F-150 Brakes - PLEASE HELP

you most likely took it apart at the wrong spot. to remove the booster, undo
the 2 nuts holding the master cylinder on and move it out of the way. then
from in the engine bay, there should be 4 buts behind the booster, between
the booster and mounting bracket on the firewall. very tight in there.
