Power brakes for 57 Fairlane

Anyone convert 1957 Fairlane with stock 312 to power brakes from manual? Some power masters say "not compatible" with stock 312...any suggestions?

powr brakes

My 58 Fairlane convertible 352 came stock with power brakes. Same body, should just need the vacuum hose hooked to the intake. I didn't like mine because of the slow release. For drag racing I bypassed the booster.

You will need one like this that has the offset bracket to clear the Y-block https://www.ebay.com/itm/1957-1959-F...YAAOSweW5U3n1A This also has the dual diaphragm booster Also if you still have drum brakes all around you will need the 10 lb residual valves listed.
