90 degree brake petal

My 1966 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow has been converted over to all GM engine & mechanics.(Frame.brakes & suspension. )

My problem.has been the brakes.....GM front discs & a Ford 9.

After many hrs I was finally was able to fit a Vette MC w/a Cadillac hydroboost, under the floor, However there is no room for the high pressure & low pressure hydraulic lines to run to & fro the ps oump.

If I mount the MC on the firewall I'll eliminate the stock wipers.

A third methd would be a foot petal,master cyl & 9" booster(room?) under the rash. This would be one where the MC/booster turns 90 degree to the foot petal movement & everything stays under the dash.

Please give comments on the under dash unit along w/any other suggestions
& pictures.

Many thanks Guys.

Fhanks Don

Have you thought about using Hydrovac boosters? They can be remotely mounted leaving the MC the only thing on the firewall. they use pressure from the MC to activate a vacuum diaphram which in turn activates a secondary piston giving the boost no need to change pedals. Different sizes are available to suit the requirement of the caliper or wheel cylinder. PBR VH 40 and PBR VH44 are the types I have used but I dont know about availability over there. These could be mounted under the body in a remote location. Alternately have a look at forward control vans Toyota Taragos have a master cylinder/ pedal assy that turns 90 degrees as do other jap vans.
