Booster Relocation Kit

DEAR FOLKS
Afew days ago on the web-i saw the cleanest booster relocation kit i have ever seen...it let you move your brake booster to the righ almost 4 inches.

however i seem to have lost this page somehow---does anyone know what i am talking about....it bolts right onto you stock housing plate then has it's own rod and kind of a criss cross feature to push the rod in---your rod stays in place-and when you push the brakes it engages a second rod that pushes in your booster...

please i may be explaining it badly as i only got to see it for moments before i lost it---but if anyone can help me find it or somethings like it i would sure be thankfull....you also get to use the same booster and mc---nothing changes except you bolt this kit into the middle between the inside engine wall mount and the back of the booster...

thanks for any help you can lend
alaskan.

yep it's a chevy i need the help on---again it's a kit like a box that just bolts inbetween your booster and fire wall and jogs the booster over 2-4 inches---i do not want to hide the booster-so i am not looking for a under floor or dash kit....

anyone see what i am talking about
help-i am running out of time.

Sorry about that. When most people are looking to relocate their master cylinder or booster it's to clear a hemi in an "A" body Mopar. I just assumed that's what you were looking for.

I see you're from Anchorage. Spent three years at Elmendorf flying F-4s in the late 70's.

I had not heard of that, but I have heard of a bendix hydro-vac system which lets you put a vacuum booster next to the master, or anywhere in the system, and the master cyl bolts up to the firewall. I have never seen one in person. Supposedly they can run on low vacuum. (this is not the p/s controlled hydroboost system)

I hope the hydro-vac for cars is better than the one for trucks. Every time we have a brake problem on a 2-ton truck, if it isn't a leaking wheel cylinder, its that darn hydro-vac.
I'm kind of looking for a similar setup, myself. After I get the big block stuffed in the 62, I'm gonna need more brakes especially if I switch to disc fronts. The trouble with that, is that its an integrated brake/clutch unit.
