Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
NOTE: Make sure that the booster rubber reaction disc is properly installed if the master cylinder push rod is removed or accidentally pulled out. A dislodged disc may cause excessive pedal travel and extreme operation sensitivity. The disc is black compared to the silver colored valve plunger that will be exposed after the push rod and front seal is removed. The booster unit is serviced as an assembly and must be replaced if the reaction disc cannot be properly installed and aligned, or if it cannot be located within the unit itself.

The brake booster is a vacuum device that store the vacuum pressure (like a small reserve tank).
Brake booster is directly connected to the engine to get the negative pressure.
When the unit age,moisture and vapor check valve will fail.
Collection of water,gas and rust will be inside the booster.
I recommend you to inspect/change all hoses when replacing the booster.
