Brakes and pulling power!

Hiya, I have a 95 Lude and would appreciate your thoughts on here fellow Lude fans!

My brakes have been lacking pressure recently, with the pedal dropping to the floor as I brake slowly.........Honda bled the brakes, but found no leaks or issues with drum or anti-lock hose, so are now assuming it's the master brake cylinder..........or failing that a servo (?).
It also pulls to the right a bit under hard braking........anyone have any thoughts on this?

Also, I have had two or three slow ignitions lately in warm weather (struggles for a few seconds before starting), and occasionally it hops a little when into third gear and pulling away, like it is momentarily starved of fuel.
I have had the ignition coil/module replaced two months ago, and just had the distributor cap cleaned, the spark plugs replaced and fuel filter replaced, and EGR valve was replaced last year, but it still does it. Any ideas?? Does the Lude have an auto choke?

Thank you all!
SP

ASSUMING your honda dealership is pretty competent in their work and there actually is no leak or air in the lines, the master cylinder is usually the next culprit.
if your sitting at a light with the brakes depressed, does it slowly sink then??

Yes, the brake slowly sinks when stopped at lights. Can't think what else it would be other than master brake cylinder.
They also identified that the muppets at Kwik-Fit fitted the wrong rear pads last year and so have not been linked to my hand brake at all.
