59 Apache power brake for manual trans??

A power brake setup that goes in place of my factory master cylinder. Perfect!! Now all I need to do is find one that will work with a manual trans. All of the units I have looked at will only work with automatics. I like to stay as original (looking) as possible with this project and dont want to run an auto trans if I don't have to. Has anyone one else run in to this problem or can someone give me some advice on how to make this unit work? If you want to see the power brake assy for this, Brothers truck parts has them. Thanks for any advice.

Is the conflict with the bellcrank for the mechanical clutch on the 4 speed? I'm guessing that is the problem (took out all that stuff when I went AutoOD). What about a hydraulic clutch setup? They're small and effective. The only problem I could foresee is where to put the reservior for the clutch slave so you could add fluid.

Just a thought.

I put my MC and brake booster on the firewall...looks less stock like, but not so unusual, since they are mounted there on most modern vehicles now.
