Images are for reference only and may not be an accurate representation of actual product.
Now available from Scott Drake Mustang, the safety and increased stopping power you have been looking for on any 1964-70 Mustang in a very easy to install unit. This setup utilizes a new Bendix style power brake booster with increased sensitivity and a 1 year warranty,* new large capacity dual chamber master cylinder, specially designed mounting bracket to allow direct bolt in while retaining original brake pedal assembly and clearance of the shock tower. (However this Kit does require notching Factory Shock Tower Brace, therefore Export Brace recommended) The push rod is preset but is adjustable to move the pedal height up or down. The only modification necessary is bending new lines from the master cylinder to the distribution block. See below for brake lines to simplify the installation. We also offer a rebuilt distribution block part number C7ZZ-2B257-A which is not included in the Power Brake Conversion. This part may be required depending on what your customers car is currently equipped with. This part is recommended for all 1964 - 1966 disc brake cars. 1967 - 1970 cars already have one from the factory but it is a good idea to replace it. This kit is easy to install and works excellent on both drum and disc brake cars. This is a very economical solution for your customers that are looking for an improved braking system along with the added safety of a dual chamber master cylinder. Note: Booster requires a minimum 15 pounds of engine vacuum pressure at idle for maximum stopping power. Some high performance high lift camshafts may not create enough vacuum. Stock engine vacuum pressure is 18 pounds.
Good idea Kerry, now just have to take the springs out again to fit longer bolts to suit the export brace.
No, just jack the car up & let the suspension droop. That will be enough to be able to tap the bolts out sideways (the are fitted from the top). Just need the shocks & top shock platform dismantled.
What he said. But it looks like that particular booster/cylinder setup may still be too long overall. Is it supposed to fit 65/66? If you get rid of the support bracket on the shock tower it still may be a squeeze. Let us know what happens mate.
I will cut the mount off and see how it fits.
That booster/master setup will fit as all early cars (64 1/2 - 70) had the same room from where the booster/master mounts to the firewall to the tower. Your issue is that tower brace bracket. I took them off DD289's 65 last weekend.
You have to drill out 2 resistance spot welds in each & slice through an arc weld on each end. A cut off disk on an angle grinder will do the job. Just be careful to only go through one thickness of metal (the piece you are cutting off).
