39 Chevy underfloor brake booster assembly

I am hoping someone can give me some advice please. I have a 1939 Chev 4 door Sedan, and I have bought a 37-48 Power Brake Booster under floor assembly unit (on EBay). The body is currently at the panel beaters and I want to start fitting the unit to the frame rail. Has anyone fitted one of these units? If so, can you give me the measurements, or do you know of a website that might be able to give me the information. Thanks.

39 Chevy underfloor brake booster assembly

I just finished installing mine on my '41 Chevy. If you have the original transmission cross member it bolts in place of the stock setup. If not, you will have to wait until the body gets back and fabricate a mount for it. That is what I had to do. I used a piece of 1/4" X 4" plate and welded it to my trans cross member, angled it from the cross member to the frame with a bend about midway. The reason you need the body is so you can determine where the pedal assembly needs to be bolted to the fabricated piece. I can take some pictures and post them if you would like to see them. Let me know.

daledove,
Did the measurements work out alright for your m/c and crossmember?

Yes, they helped out a lot. Thanks. I took some photos of what it looks like nearly finished. I'll post them if you would like to see them. Maybe they will help this guy with his project.

Sure go ahead and post them. I bolted mine in but I'm trying to decide if I like where the pedal comes through the floor or not. Right now it's crowding the steering column to the left and the placement of the accel pedal to the right. My size 13 shoe has to work in there somewhere.
