Which brake hose was replaced? The rear brake system has a special bleeding procedure, the front is the normal procedure. 

Agree to make sure the brake pump turns on first, without it you will have no boost at all. There is a relay/fuse box near the passenger front wheel that tends to burn out wiring on the bottom if the pump runs too long.

If the accumulator is bad, the system won't work correctly. It sounds like this is the case. When you turn the key on, how long does the ABS pump run for? It *should* turn off after about 30 seconds. If it doesn't, there are other issues...could be a sensor, switch, the bulb...depending on your will to keep the stock ABS, it might be cheaper and better in the long run to convert it to a vacuum assisted system like all the rest of the Chryslers of the time. Yes, you lose ABS, BUT, you gain serviceability and the peace of mind that IF something happens it won't be that expensive to fix, plus ANY shop should be able to do it if you can't.
