My master cylinder wasn't building pressure so I thought this might be a good time to upgrade to power brakes. I just put this power brake booster I bought off ebay on my 1955.2 3800. booster
It's mounted but still needs hooked up. I had to cut the pedal off the assembly to get it through the firewall but installing it so far has gone pretty smooth really.
I have a few questions I thought I might get input on.
1.) I still need to get vacuum from somewhere for the booster part. I'm sure I can pull it from anywhere but does anyone have a suggestion on where might be the best place to pull my vacuum from? Will it hurt anything if I pull it off the carb?
2.) This new booster moved the reservoir back so I can't use the fill hole in the floor anymore. I figure I need to cut a new hole so I can fill the brake fluid as needed. I hate cutting holes all over but o well. Any suggestions on the best way to cover a new access hole in the floor for the new one? I thought about the gasket off one of those cheap trailer grote lights from napa but I'm open for suggestions.
3.) The kit came with 2 residual valves. Do I need to use them? If so should I put them on the front wheels, back wheels, or order a 3rd one and put them on the two front and one on the rear before it tees off?
