If you are just going for a driver, then you can use the booster from any newer large GM car (impala, caprice, cady). Just make sure that the booster came from a car that had the same set up (disc/drum or disc/disc). Get the whole booster, prop valve everything. You might even get the petel as well. Then take it home and start figuring, you might have to fab a bracket or drill some holes to mount the booster. I would go the extra length and go ahead and replace all the brake lines as well and use only silicone fluid. IMO its the only safe way to do things.

The company that you bought the brackets from should have given you that information. I bought mine from Scarebird.com and they gave me that info.

Mine use s10 Blazer rotors and calipers..........Monte Carlo MC and proportioning valve.

63,
You can avoid all the guessing and get your brakes perfect by going with a Summit G3905 adjustable proportion valve,

and a Master Power VL3526 metering block.

I went with the Scarebird swap too, #1 in my book!

Here's a couple photos.

I made my own brake lines. If you make loops don't make them higher then the master.

63 Master cyls go with the booster.
If you have a bolt on cap is usually a Delco Moraine if its a snap ring cap is usually a Bendix.
I used a disc/drum 72 Bonneville Bendix master cyl, it fit perfectly.
