Check to make sure the vacuum hose to the booster is intact- the booster uses engine vacuum to assist the brakes. If the vacuum hose is OK and has good vacuum, then the booster is the problem

There is not a vacuum hose on this system so your answer was not helpful at all.

You're correct- you should have a pressure accumulator (black ball) on yours, that is pressurized by a pump. Check for anything loose. These were notoriously flaky and many people have replaced them with a different system (since back then the systems didn't have to communicate with one another)
