Sounds like you surely replaced just about everything.

The only possible causes of issue at this point are:
1) air in the lines
2) faulty master cylinder.

Obviously, the master cylinder being replaced twice makes this part less likely to be bad. However, it is possible.

Try to bleed the system thoroughly again - get some assistance if needed.
Thank you for reply. Could bad HCU be an issue? 4 wheel abs system. The most current feedback I received from Ford is possible valve stuck in HCU. Will try to pressure bleed brakes with new machine, used cheap vaccuum set up last 2 times. Once again, thank you for the reply.....
Very much doubt an HCU. Usually, a failed HCU with a stuck valve will cause a pull, but not a soft pedal.
