Do I need to change the brake booster rod?

I am getting mixed opinions. I am converting my 69 Camaro manual front drum brakes to power disc front and drum rear. Do I need to change the brake booster rod also? Thanks!

Yes you do, I cannot remember but a manual rod is either shorter or longer than a power booster rod. If you compare a manual M/C with a power M/C you will see the differance. One of them has a deeper recess for the actuation rod. I discovered this when I removed the booster from my 34 project.

Hey, thanks for the info. Does anyone know how far the brake pedal at the pad should be from the gas pedal at the pad?
