How do you diagnose a very hard pedal when applying the brakes of a vehicle equipped with a hyrdo-booster?

You are taking too much vacuum away from the vacuum booster in the brake system. Try to find a smaller vacuum hose somewhere else in the engine to use for the Hydro Booster.

That vacuum for the brakes needs to be undisturbed for correct operation of the braking system and the ABS if so equipped.
