Enlighten me. I am I'm the process of gathering parts for a disc brake conversion. On my 1960 third with AC and Kelsey Hayes booster under dash. I purchased a master cylinder, booster and proportioning valve from abs power. The bracket on the booster raises it and extends the booster out, but from what I read here with that clear the AC plenum? Will I need another bracket to attach booster to brake pedal on firewall?

You should be ok with the package from ABS.

The input bolt centers are on standard 3-3/8" square and it comes with a check valve.

As for the Ford extension... If you already have a OEM booster with all the necessary hardware connected to your brake pedal, why would you disturb that by replacing it with the same thing?

To retrofit a modern booster, simply cut the rivets off your OEM booster and keep the firewall bracket on the firewall, just as it always was. Then connect a new universal booster to that using your own spacer. Yes, you need to drill four holes in your spacer but you can widen and use the rivet holes in the firewall bracket side and put the booster holes on 3-3/8" (standard) centers.

As Eric said, the new two-stage 8" boosters produce about 40% more than drum brake OEM boosters. Disk brake calipers need at least that much to work properly.

The bellows-type boosters offer very little-to-nothing for power brakes. - Dave
Just kick back and taking notes my booster brackets are getting closer
