Why no Power Brakes?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced everything on my brake system and still have no power brakes. Is there an adjustment I have overlooked?

Did you properly set the depth of the plunger assembly between the master cylinder and brake booster when assembling it? How about bench bleeding the master cylinder, as well as bleeding all of the wheels and lines? You might also want to check for vacuum leaks or other probs. that could cause your vacuum booster not to work.
