I just put my new booster M/C combo on my 68 and it doesn't look right. The brackets that attach it to the firewall are about 3 inches deep and at an angle. It makes the M/C angle up from the firewall so much that it looks like the hood won't even close. Took it back to Autozone and it's the number they show for 67 & 68. The have a different number for 69 and they ordered it so we can see if it's different.
Looking at the picture in David's web site of a 67 booster with drum M/C the bracket looks like it is closer to the booster and staight up & down. That looks like what I would expect.
Anybody have any pics of the brackets on the back of a 68 booster or any insite's they can share?
Winch, it does angle up. I have some pics of mine I can send you if it would help. (The hood hinge is kinda in the way, but you should get a good idea from them.) Let me know, I can e-mail them to you.
So that bracket is supposed to hold the booster about 2 inches away from the firewall? I must have had the right one.
Now the question is which booster & M/C shoud I use? It's not obvious that I should just go with a 68 since when I ordered what is supposed to be the a correct front line kit for converting to disc using the later model combination valve and that kit is shown as being for a 69 (in D&R catalog). Now since there is a different part number for 69 vs 67 & 68 at Autiozone for the booster & M/C I wonder if I shouldn't use the 69.
Any idea what the difference in those are?

This reply was just me trying to figure out to attach or insert a pic. How do you do that?
I was going to copy David's pic of 67 drum M/C and booster to show why I thought it looked more straight up and down. I guess it's the anlge of the pic. But looking at the other ones the whole thing definately angles up.
