I would say not. On a PB setup, the pushrod is part of the booster and the one you showed has it attached to the M/C itself.

Not without a lot of fabrication!
That is a single master clyinder ment to be used in pairs, one for the front and one for the rear with a balance bar between them.

Wilwood does make a NICE aluminum MC;

You'd want PN 260-8556 for power brakes, and it will still require a little fab of the pushrod I think

I have the polished one in my car, along with Kieth's wilwood brake kit (front and rear) and it works flawlessly.

Those are really nice. I need the 7/8" one, but just don't like the $200 price tag.

well to my demise I have been shot down again in yet another attempt to try to fit this procharger filter on. The point was to find enough room with that master cylinder because it is 3 inches shorter than the stock one so I can fit a intake pipe in there.


hmmmmm. I did get off the phone with a brake shop today. They were saying i could relocate my booster and master cylinder. Not an easy task in my mind. I have had this procharged motor sitting in my car with no intake hose and no exhaust system but the headers. Im so close I can taste it. But the clearances suck so bad by the brake system.

Either relocate brakes and custom hood OR

Modify supercharger bracket and make a power steering pump resevoir.
A note on this method. My supercharger pulley is so tight already putting an idler arm on the bracket would be a bad idea unless it gave me more slack.

Is there a path of least resistance. I think not.


Im open to suggestions at this point.

How about manual brakes. That should free up some room.

I have manual brakes, properly designed they work pretty dang good.
just make sure to get good pads, i.e. NOT lifetime!

I agree, I have manual brakes on my 71' and they work fine. A little more effort but very acceptable.
