Thanks everyone.

I changed my 57 to disk brakes several years ago and have the stock fender mounted Midland booster which felt like it added very little boost. I now have the booster out of the system and the brakes work very good but of course the pedal effort is a bit high. The system my buddy used was from a GM truck which I think he said was the same as used on GM diesel cars and used hyd pressure from the power steering pump. I will try and find a part number or picture to post.
