It still has the original booster in place. If anyone has done this conversion before I would appreciate hearing from you on how I accomplish the job,and maybe find out problems I can avoid.
You will need a M/C off like a 1984 S-10 with manual brakes, And if you can get some manual rear drum wheel cylinders they are supposed to be a larger bore. And you will need the adapter plate like the one in the pic below to bolt were the booster was and to bolt the new M/C to. You might need to consider a proportion valve also. this is all i can think of off hand maybe someone else will come along and add to it or straighten me out . You will more the likely have to measure for the push-rod after you get it all bolted up. You will want the correct size rod length and diameter.
