Power Booster

Most Monte Carlo El Camino Brake Boosters Are Nine Inch I Also No That The 67 Ford Galaxie Has Even Smaller Booster The Should Give You An Idea What To Start With. Also Lobecks Has Universal Brake Boosters Or Even Speedway Wil Be Able To Accomidate Your Search

I am also limited on the firewall on the 1947 chevy I am working on. The hydra boost brake booster is what I am using. The picture shows an old unit but I have bought a new one for a 1994 GM pickup.

If you have some room in the chassis, you can go with an under-floor type brake booster/MC system.

re: power brake booster and master cylinder ?

FWIW - I found a 7 inch booster to be a little weak on a gm disc setup. Advise you find a 7 inch dual diaphram. They are available aftermarket, not sure about oem.

A friend of mine used a booster/ master cyl combo from a Toyota truck on his 38 Pontiac.

I really do not have the room to mount the assembly under the floor. Have the new booster installed. The hoses were expensive but should have real good brakes. I am working on making a pedal assembly under the dash.
