well, i finally found the prob in my brakes! i pulled the master away from the booster to check the bore size and found that i had a booster with the small push rod and a sleeve on it! i have a master with the deep dole, not the small dimple!! hmmm??? sumbody rigged sumthin here so yesterday i went to the wrecker and snagged an "almost new" reman. booster off an old chebby and put it on!!! it works sweet! so if u guys ever have this prob check the booster. I got my advice from the front of the master power brakes catalog, it says improperly calibrated boosters will cause "touchy" brakes!!
gotta love the experts
thanks for all your responses tho

I put photos of the pushrods and master cyls on my web site. I didn't know what the symptoms would be if you put the deep master on a short rod booster.
The rod can be easily pulled out and changed.
