I have two diff. setups on my cars. One has the booster removed and the stock m/c. The other still has the booster on it but not hooked up and I can't tell any diff. between the two

I have found if you remove the booster the best Master Cyl to run is off a 69 1/2ton Chevy. It's for Factory Manual breaks and has a long hole to put a break rod in to so it can't fall out on you.

Using the stock '86 Monte V8 setup. The vacuum is even connected. They don't work tremendously well at driveway speeds, but when going into the turn, the engine makes enough vacuum that they work quite well. Much better than manual would.

It's worked with a 238@.050" .480" and a 245@.050" .534" cam in a 10.2:1 355.
