So after several months of pissing about with diagnostics, replacing almost all the braking system, rebuilding all the calipers and bleeding the whole system about 15 times both manual and power bleed, the brakes have slightly improved but still shocking pedal feel. The local specialist had a look as well and decided thats just how they are when he compared it to a much newer sprinter and gave me an MoT anyway. Brakes work fine and will lock up all 6 tyres but just feel terrible to the uninitiated.

Hopefully this will save anyone else the faff.

My brakes never "fixed" but to be honest my local garage checked it all over and decided it was a characteristic of the van and Mot'd it anyway and since I'm used to the feel and it does stop perfectly fine I have given up with it for the moment. I do intend to investigate the vacuum side of things when I get chance to get back into it but it's taken a back seat to other projects at the moment.
