I bled rear brakes and front brakes from the calipers with a vacum pump

The best way to get the air out is to have someone pump the brake until it`s hard and then bleed the lines till you have brake fluid coming. I wouldn`t trust a vacume pump..

Incorrect adjustment between master cylinder and booster. Describe , again , the symptoms and difference from shut off to start-up.
