Manual Disc to Power ???

My son just bought a '79 CJ5 that has disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear. They are not power brakes and he was wondering how much is involved in putting power assist on this kind of set-up??

Here you go Em, He can get this and bolt it in looks like it has everything there bolt it in and hook up the lines, And hook up the vacuum line to a good source, Bleed the brakes out also, Might want to throw in a proportion valve to adjust it all out with. http://www.jeep4x4center.com/product...r=MBM-PBUJ7486 . Here the instruction to install it with, It don't say anything about the proportion valve so guess you may not need it but it's a good thing to have IMHO. http://www.jeep4x4center.com/pdf/MBM-PBUJ7486.pdf . Now it says this set-up is for a V8 jeep but they have them for others also, I have done these type swaps before and really not a big job. JMO
