Brake booster relocation.

Hi all.
I'm currently building a 63 EH Ute and would love to move the brake booster out of the bay and into the try somewhere. I have seen it done but have no idea on where to start or anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx
Derek

A lot of rodders here stateside have used the kits from the street rod shops that mount a power brake booster and the pedal below the floor board.



Not having seen a 63 Ute ... I do not know if that might work for you ..

Yeah not sure if that will work unfortunately. It's a Monocoque( something like that) body style so no chassis rails to mount to or keep protected by if you know what I mean.
What I was thinking about doing, have been awake most of the night thinking of ideas is to mount the master cylinder under the guard and then run lines to under neath the rear ray area(massive amount of room) and mount the booster there. I just not sure if I need any one way valves or any of that stuff to be able to do it safely.
I am of the belief that an engine is for an engine and nothing else should be seen in there. Hence I'm going to have real fun completely rewiring the motor so that all the wiring is hidden.
Cheers
Derek
P.S. Piccy is not of my Ute unfortunately but gives you an idea of what they look like.

P.S. Piccy is not of my Ute unfortunately but gives you an idea of what they look like.

If you are concerned about the safety of the Ute because of the unibody, have you thought about the possibility of sitting the Ute on a S10 0r S15 chassis. I don't know the dimensions of the Ute but looking at the pic makes me think they are about the same. If that is in fact true, (I have not put a great deal of thought into the project, it may work and it may not work) possibly six or eight U-bolts might just saddle the Ute onto the S10 chassis. You could call it a Utes10 (sounds like you testin to see if it will workout for you). It would raise the Ute at least 6 to 8 inches. Just a thought.

Yeah that's an idea but rasing it by 6 or 8 inches NOOOOOOOO

LOL

I want to slam it on the ground Am making a full chassis rails for it so that should make it nice and strong, they are already pretty strong being made in 63 they built them tough as anything. But a little bit extra can't hurt.

Hmmm Like the name though what about EH-S10.

The under dash Booster looks like a winner at the moment Unfortunately I'm linited by space under the dash but there should be enough for one of those. The aircon is going in the tray under the parcel shelf and will be hidden by a false wall so should do the trick.

Thanx
Derek

It is nearly the same setup as in a little Toyota truck with bulldog nose called Dyna. The car is not sold in the US as far as I know, but maybe in Australia.
