View Full Version : 9" Brake booster

If you were to put on a salvaged car's brake booster what car would work on 61 thunderbird? I am using a 7" booster when I converted to disc front. That 7" booster is not doing the job. Thought would try a 9".
I fit a 9" from a 79 f350, but it was a nightmare to fit. Search on my name for the thread and pics

I think you need at least an 8" booster for disk brakes. 7'' wouldn't have enough pressure. Maybe ring one of the brake company's to see if they can help like MBM brakes. Or look at 66 Tbird booster.

I think you want to go with an 8" booster instead of a 9"... You might have difficulty shutting your hood with a 9" one. All of us who have done dual mc/power booster upgrades have used the 8" booster, as recommended by Dave ~ simplyconnected....
