Start the car. Place you foot on the brake and hold steady pressure. If the brake pedal slowly moves toward the floor, you need to replace the master cylinder.

you need to take off the master cylinder and the accumulator and replace it with a master cylinder from a non antilock vehicle like a thunderbird or cougar from about 1985 to 1988.

You will need to bleed the brakes, starting from the caliper furthese from the master cylinder then moving closer.
