Need Help ordering parts: (PICS)

I am currently building a 1952 Chevrolet 3100 with:

-Disc brakes all the way around
-Power seats
-Air ride suspension

Where can I order:

1. Big block Chevy gasket that looks like

2. 26" rubber brake line

3. Y/T Connectors - I need to convert the rear brake lines into a single brake line

Looking for recommendations:

I currently have this brake booster:

It is missing the hardware that attaches to the brake pedal.
4. Where can I find this hardware?

5. Will this booster even be big enough to stop my truck?

6. What kind of brake pedal should I use?

The exhaust gaskets are available pretty much anywhere. Just get 454 square port gaskets.

What do you plan to do with a 26" rubber brake line? That's much longer than is normally used. You want to run hard line as far as possible and just use the minimum flex line to get from the frame to the rear axle. Any flex line from, say, a later model pickup should work fine. It will also have the tee fitting already built into it on the axle end.

As for sizing of the booster, since we have no idea what diameter it is, how much vacuum your engine will pull, what the diameters of the master cylinder and caliper pistons are, what pedal ratio you will be using, or even what your truck weighs, no one can possibly tell you if the booster is large enougn.

contact Wilwood or a wilwood dealer for brake parts.(or equivalent after marker brake systems dealer)You can buy custom made braided steel lines if for some reason you need longer lines.Rubber lines deflect when the brakes are applied and long rubber lines are not usually used or recommended.
