Post rear drum brakes

I have a 53 ford that i am planning on usign the stock rear end in ( at least til i can buy a new 9"). anyway i was wondering if anyone knew where i coudl get the parts to rebuild the brakes, or upgrade them or soemthign. Could i use modern drum brake parts or soemthing? I m planning on getting a disc brake conversion kit from butch's rod shop (i think thats teh name). i was planning on using a mustang master cylinder. What year master cylinder should i get? Also any info on teh gear ratios for that year on the rear end would be greatly appreciated.

THanks a lot

p.s. - the main thing i mtryign to go for here is not having to buy brake parts from dennis carpenter, because his crap is like original type crpa and its very expensive.
