fitting 1972 c10 brakes on a 1963 c10

i went parts shopping the other day and managed to get the spindles, disk brakes, power brakes,power steering box and pump from a 1972 chevy for my 1963 c10...well i mounted the brake booster on my truck and it seem to fit nicely in the same location as the old one. The arm that connects brake pedal assembly is a tad short but all u have to do is unscrew the arm and adjust it to the length so it bolts to the brake pedal. will this work the way i have it set up or will i have to buy some special kind of bracket? i put it on for mock up. any advice is greatly appreciated

If you don't get the 72 pedal then don't lengthen the rod till you drill a hole 1 1/2 lower in your stock one.
You need to maintain your pedal ratio.
