www.corral.net/forums has a section for classic Mustangs. Might search there if you don't get a reply here.

It would be much easier to find a 69/70 MUSTANG/FAIRLANE of the period. Do you actually have the GRANADA swap?

Outer tie rods, spindles/etc..
Pretty straightforward.

The '68 out back (not mine) is using a '75 Grenada 15/16" master cylinder, with manual brakes. The calipers are also '75 Grenada, having 2 5/8" pistons. I did not do the swap, but I have done some work on the car.
It stops well, but has no prop valve. The rears tend to lock in the rain in a hard stop. It has the 10" rear drums with the larger (15/16") cylinders. I'm fixin' to put the 13/16" cylinders on it.... or maybe I'll just plumb a prop valve

I would think the 1970 should be similar.
The Grenada spindles do move the wheel centerline slightly (forward?) from where it is supposed to be.

If you are changing from manual drums to manual disc, I would use the 15/16" Grenada master or a 1970 Mustang 1" master. The 15/16 will be easier to push, but has a bit of travel to it.

If you're changing from power drum to power disc, either one still might work, or you might need to step up to a 1 1/8" bore (ford truck).
The 1970 Mustang calipers are listed as having a smaller piston than the Grenada, so might need a larger master. I know the 15/16 works on a manual-manual swap.

If going from manual to power or vice-versa, I have no idea. I think they used different pedal assemblies.

I also found out the wheelbase change with the Grenada spindles is only on 1965 6cy cars, and it makes it shorter.

I thought the link I gave had decent directions. I just picked one out of the many I found doing a GOOGLE search.
