1951 chevy styleline deluxe booster

Hello!
I bought this 51 chevy about august last year, and when i got it the engine wasnt running and the master cylinder was not working. Well got the engine running, but i want to upgrade the the brakes to power brakes. I got the booster kit for it but i cant figure it out.

What can i do to install it?

Thanks!!!

brake booster

No, the part didnt come with instructions.
I bought the part on ebay. The bracket bolts on right but i cant put the booster on because it will hit the park brake, and the pedal doesnt aline.
Do i need to modify it do fit or should it fit right in.

Hi,
Some of those kits won't work on convertibles, will only work on original "k" frame, works only with automatic transmission, some were for trucks they look similar but I think they are longer causing interference with the parking brake pulley, you don't have many choices, either try & get the installation instructions, or try & get your money back, then get a good kit, or modify what you have to fit your car.
