Master cylinder .........
You've probably already figured this out by now but thought I'd throw in my two bits. I'm building a 55 Ford and have a 429 sitting in it. The 429 / 460 are basically the same in outward size. I was going to put in a Granada master cylinder with p.b booster but found that the booster hit the valve covers. I contacted a guy running a 428 with a 671 blower and asked what he had for brakes. He has disk / drum like I'm running and told me he runs a non-power master cylinder which removes the booster. Since I'm using the Granada steering column / pedal hangar, I looked online at NAPA and Schuck's auto parts sites and found that this car used a manual brake system with the disk / drum configuration. The other guy said his car stops "fine" without the power brake option. The answer to my problem of room restrictions was to use the manual brake master cylinder which cost me $20 bucks for a rebuilt unit and that included the core charge (Schucks). I modified my mount which I had to do anyway to get the pedal / column mount set up (wider hole spacing than the original equip.)
sorry for being so long winded. But what I'm saying is this. Buy a manual brake master cylinder and eliminate the power booster which will interfere with the valve covers on your 460.
Hope this helps!
