Unhappy Here's a tough one(Master Cyl)

OK, I got a '46 Chevy Panel truck from a guy that had it half built. Inside was a NEW 7" brake booster, no master cylinder. Well he doesn't know which one will fit or where the booster came from, it was there when he got the truck too. So I've got a NEW booster, mfg unknown, local parts stores can't match one, builders that I've contacted won't touch it. There is no markings at all on the booster to help ID it. Anybody got an idea of how I can match a cylinder for it??
And yes my next idea is PUNT and start over but I don't like the idea of wasting a new booster. The only thing I've got are the mesurements from the booster. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

First of all try some nuts or bolts on the booster, are they metric or SAE? This is the first stop, then is there a pedal hooked up to it? Check for stamping marks or stencils on the pedal and brackets, with that in hand or what you do have head to the wrecking yard and start on the foreign end or the american end of the yard and compare the size and shape and bolt patterns. I'd rather take some time than spend more money.
