Power brake booster mounting

Postby pbeck » Mon Jan 11, 2021 3:24 pm

Has anyone done a 90 degree mount for their booster and master cylinder ? I'm pretty sure I have seen that modification on someone's car just can't remember whose. I'm going to have to replace my master cylinder anyway so figured just as well take it to the next step.

are you going to try to put it under the dash ? or just at 90 in the trunk area ? google search for 90 degree master cylinder mount turns up a lot of options for under dash mounting ,,popular in street rods ,, Speedway is one source ,, I imagine that would be difficult to check fluid level ,,,now if you want to turn it sideways under the hood ,, I remembered a van had that setup ,, turns out it was a dodge ,, a search found threads on jalopy journal ,, but it wouldn't load ..but my search string was VAN 90 DEGREE MASTER CYLINDER MOUNT ,,I have seen master and booster straight out under hood ,, do you have interference going straight forward ? I think it was a "master power setup " IIRC

Paul, David Baeckelandt has a 90 degree setup in his car, originally built by Bob Brownell... not sure if the spelling is correct on the builder.
