Are you changing the motor out to a V-8? If so, you will have valve cover clearance problems with an 11" booster. I have a 50 plymouth wagon and the guy I bought it from had an 8" booster and when I put the 360 in I had very little room between valve cover and booster. I got a 7" dual diaphram and solved the problem.

OMG! you are the guy i need to get to know! thanks for replying so quickly! im going to put a big block in the car...can you tell me if i will have any other issues and what they might be? i know this leaves the post a little so if you need to pm me or something that would be awesome!

im assuming that since you have a big car and a big engine that the 7" must be more than adequate to help you stop??? have you had the car out on the road and liked the pressure/power of the breaks???

also...do you know if the rest of the parts in the set up will work or not??? thanks for everything...your information is going to be very helpful!

the kit will not work on your 50. You have king pin spindles and it will not mount. I have posted in a previous string several links that should provide some good leads on what you have and what you can do to upgrade your brakes.
drum to disc conversion
Hope this helps.
