My 1987 chevy celebrity will start. But i will put my foot on the break so i can put it in gear. And everytime we touch the break my car dies? I have changed the fuel pump already. Why is it doing this?

Large vacuum leak most likely inside brake booster.. Pull vacuum line from booster and hold finger on hose while helper pushes brake pedal to see if it does the same thing. Post results... Get some hands-on help from car savvy friend if needed!
