My setup is not a kit; it uses standard parts you can get at any auto parts store and the best part is that you still retain your original spindles and bearings. Many kits use proprietary rotors and calipers, so if you need replacement parts you must go to the manufacturer. This setup also allows you to use 14 wheels found on many Ford disc brake cars. All the aftermarket kits I am aware of require you to use 15 wheels.

Have you figured out how to mount the booster. What bracket are you using? It looks like I am going to have to modify mine some more to clear my tall custom valve covers or I might have to go back to stock valve covers.

What adapter are you using? Did your car have manual brakes before or did it have the Bendix Booster, or the Kelsey Hayes under the dash booster?
Does your car have A/C? All of these take different brackets to mount the new booster. I was just interested in which type you are using. Ray used a custom made bracket on Yellow Bird. I am making one using the Bendix booster bracket and a jeep bracket to clear the A/C plenum.

I have a non-AC car with firewall mounted booster. I'm using the bracket from my old booster to mount the new one. I ordered the jeep bracket, but it is on back order until late may, so I'll have to cut down the threaded rod coming out of the back of my booster a bit.

Is this the Master Cylinder from off of the Scarebird list of parts?
