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.

All boosters on my page are angled up. They have to be that way to connect the booster rod to the lower hole in the brake pedal.
Here is my 67 MC/booster:

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.
