Brake pedal should be solid and with little pedal travel without the engine running, when runing the pedal should fall away as the servo works.

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? You may still have some air trapped some where in the system. Bench bleeding is important to do, saves lots of hassles and agravation.

I use an old master cylinder cover with a valve stem weled the the top. Just put a little air pressure, say about 3 pounds and let the air force fresh fluid through the system.
