Planning on changing from manual drum to pwr, disk brakes on the front of my 67. Will a stock booster and master cylinder from a -69- fit under my hood? It appears that there might be clearance problem because of the 15 degrees or so of tilt caused by the booster mounting brackets. Was ther a difference between 67/68 and the booster,master from 1969? Down to the sub-frame so it would be impractical to mount the hood at this time to check for clearance problems.
Thanks
Brian

69 parts will work fine.
If you don't allready have a booster, look at the kits that have the master, booster, and combination valve all mounted together properly.
Take a look here.

I would beware of Stainless Steel Brake Co. I bought a set of there A 123-6 brakes that there web page speced for my 69. The specs say you must use 15" wheels. Well, I have stock rally wheels which are 15x8 and the only way I can get the wheels on is if I use 7/16" spacers! I called the company and his answer to me was that he could not guarentee that all 15" wheels would work!!!. This is a direct controdiction of what there specs say. They want me to spend more money ($350.00) and they will send me the parts to make it work. My car is a # matching 69 Camaro and there is no reason for them not to fit. I hope my experance will prevent you and others from having the same expensive dissapointment I have

Rdcmro69,
Demand your money back and send their stuff back. There is plenty of brakes out there that would work right. Gotta boycott the bad ones so they go bankrupt..sp?...or til they get a clue.
