Master Cylinder and Mini Booster?

Hey guys, the master cylinder and booster on my 1979 Pontiac TA is completely missing so I'm wanting to upgrade it as I replace it. My car has the factor 4 wheel discs. Any suggestions? The rest of my brake system is completely new. I was thinking of trying to go with a mini booster to try and cut down on the mass of the original booster size. Anyone know where I can possibly get these in a set? Thanks.

Hey, Muzz

You do not want a mini booster-----not enough power assist.
My 59 is a pain to get stopped with that little 7" booster I have, but nothing else will fit.

How is that car coming along--------you driving it yet???

I'm in the process of putting my 66 Elky back together---was painted 12/08, and is still taking up space in the body shop. I have most of the stuff---just no time.

Hey Bryan,
Haven't really done much to it, just trying to iron this brake thing out. Thanks for the tip.

If your car is having problems stopping with a 7" booster may I suggest you have something wrong.

Various firms offer the 7" booster and an early Corvette master cylinder combination. They are usually used on street rods, so look at Speedway Automotive or Yogis Inc.
