Gonnuts-
Im thinking about buying this bracket myself. I want to use the 8" booster also. Your setup looks great! Did you have to mess with the steering column at all as previous members claim they have had trouble installing the bracket? Or maybe the previous members are using a bigger booster causing the problem with the linkage to steering column. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated as im just waiting on some solid answers to order the bracket.
Thanks.

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

I have my column pushed in about 1 3/4" or so I believe(not sure I'd have to measure), and I have lots of room. I didn't do that to make the booster fit though, I did that when I put the column in for comfort. I turned the bolt around on shifter before I put the bracket because I thought I would need the space, but I don't think that was necessary and I plan on turning it back around.

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

The guys that had the interference issue with the column shifter hitting the booster were using a typical 10-11" diameter OEM booster.

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

That booster is just one of the universal aftermarket boosters. You'll have to elongate the holes in my booster bracket slightly to bolt one of those to it.

I'll send you a PM with ordering info.

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

That looks good

That is correct in regards to elongating the holes for the booster. My booster brackets are designed to use factory boosters with the 3-3/8" x 3-1/2" stud pattern, not the aftermarket boosters with the 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" stud pattern. So the amount to elongate the holes is only 1/16" each.

Would you mind if I copied your pics and posted them in the '63-'66 booster bracket for sale thread?

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

if you can...please look at my set up on my brakes. it is 1968 with front disc brake conversion on it when I bought truck so I am in the dark about specifics. I am wondering if the bracket that you offer would work for me and what would I gain if used it other than giving me a more cleaner more spacious look under hood. thank a lot. your product looks great.

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

Since you already have power brakes, all you will gain is looks and room. When lengthening the booster pushrod, it just needs to be done in such a way so that it is long enough, and still has adjustment available. There are a few different ways to go about it.

Here are a couple ways:

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

do you offer any rear disc brake conversion bracket kits? or any tips on a conversion using found parts from typical salvage yard vehicles?

Re: Power Brake Booster Adapter Bracket

Yes I have 5 rear disc brake bracket sets. There are links to the for sale threads for the 3 five lug bracket sets in my signature line. If you need 6 lug, let me know and I'll send you the links to those.
