You will need the manual master cylinder & the appropiate length of rod.

pedal ?

The pedal ratio might be different. Years ago , early 60's my power brake did not release fast enough for drag racing. I just got rid of it. I probably could have reworked the booster but throwing it away was easier.a foot at the start is worth 10 feet or more at the finish line
