With the engine off, if i pump the brake pedal, it firms up and stops at about half way down. If i then fire the engine up, the pedal drops down the rest of the way. May be this is the normal travel? Anyone have ideas or suggestions?
I have this exact same problem in my truck that is almost back on the road. I am actually using the same master cylinder and booster as you too. I have already modified the pushrod so that there is no clearance between it and the master cylinder when everything is bolted together.

What solution did you come up with for this problem?
