Physically I dont think it will fit and there will be other issues with the pedal so I didnt look any further mate. If you want a booster get an original or repo 65/66. It will be a lot less grief in the long run and you can build the car without one to try. If you dont like the feel you just add the booster later.
cheers

Check with Vince, Craig..
There were a couple of boosters on the floor the other day, couple of different years, but I'm unsure what a 65/6 booster looks like.. so cant say if he had one..

Hi all, while on the topic what do you think about this kit? www.ebay.com.au/itm/26...300wt_1271

Kelsey Hayes, seems to have everything.

I'm looking to fit to my 67 auto coupe.

Cheers,

Coops.

You'll likly need a new brake pedal if your car dosen't have power brakes now. The pedals have adifferent ratio.

Is it just that the pivot point is different or does the whole pedal have a different shape?

I guess the real question is can you just chop and weld it to make it the same...?

Not really sure Mike, never used any of this stuff always used Falcon, boosters ect. Pretty sure they are different though, some models you can alter some you can't Kerry knows more about it.

For Craig, its in the booster per Kerry's post from another thread..

Unless you have the booster with the rocker setup pictured below, you will never get a pedal.

Non power pedal is 6 - 1 ratio & power pedal is 4 - 1 ratio. That rocker setup changes the ratio. From 67 on, the actual pedal changes as the mount under the dash allows it, but 65/6 has no room for that, so Ford had this rocker setup between the booster & firewall.

For you Mike,
Its a different pedal AND pivot point..
The pedals are different length, it mounts higher in the pedal box and pin is lower.




Smaller hole at top is the disc pedal mounting point

It's somthing you need to consider, Rare spares wouldn't know. That's who the seller USA specials is. It's a stuff up, the Ford OZ never did this, everything was the same. Those early type 4 spots aren't as relieable as the 68 on single spot brakes, The piston kick sidways and jamb, the car then changes lanes under brakes. Kerry reckons the seals are 2 thin to guide the piston, he getts them modified. On all but concours cars, my engineer nromally retro fitts single spots on RHD conversions, much better brake. The single spots are bascally the same as Aussie stuff, Ford Oz never used the KH 4 spots they used locally made 2 spots similar to what holden used on HR and larger ones they used from HK on, Chev Monaros used the same calipers but with a thicker disc, Ford Oz used this set up till part way through XW, then went to single spots from then to XG ute. I have a set of original XYs here same as what a HO would have run. Nothing special about them. HO's had different rear brakes, ie Thunderbird, wit 5/8 cylinders rather than 13/16 to reduce rear wheel lock up.
Coops your welcome to come over for a beer, and see how it all fitts together, happy to help, I helped Happyone with his GTA Vert brake up grade. He loves it. Another simple option for you would the MofM method of falcon Rotors, and Commodore calipers or CRS kit. Very straight forward. Perhaps conside not just doing the brakes but giveing the whole front end the once over so it turns in nicer and tracks better, pull it apart once and fix it right up, you'll have much better drive

ok so the booster I require has pivoting arm to suit pedal design of 65/66 and the "ram" for want of correct description of it an't be one of the straight versions?

I bought a kit aswell and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the pivot. I was wondering if I might be able to get away with just buying the pivot/rocker.
