Ok, I have a hydroboost mastercylinder in the car right now. Its from an 85 buick grand national. Is there some way I can just "gut" the hydroboost unit and use this master cylinder as a manual unit? The pedal I have is already setup and all, so is there some way I can do this? If not, can I at least take the hydroboost unit out and bolt the master straight to the firewall? What kind of an adapter do I need to do this? Thanks.

Sleepy talks about that in the March 2003 SCR about what to do. I believe in a nut shell remove the booster and shorten the brake rod. Eddie

I would recomend getting a manual brake master cylinder from a '75 Chevelle. It was real cheap to get at the parts store but ask if it comes with the push rod as they are different from the power units.

Awww man, you made a street stock out of a Grand National?

If I remember correctly an 80s S10 manual brake cylinder will bolt right in.

LOL...all that was left of it was a frame, shell, and front suspension. It was parted out by a guy that collects GN's. It didn't go to waste.
