MP Brakes Brake Booster

Does anyone have one of these MP Brakes Booster set ups, with the "level" mount bracket?

I recently installed a Wilwood Master Cylinder in my 67, and it's much longer then my previous one. So much so it's making contact with the hood, not allowing it to close all the way on that side. The booster I have now is from Detroit Speed. The MP Brakes one, well the mounting bracket anyways, looks like that would cure that.

Are you using the DSE booster brackets?

1968 that started life and a 6 banger with a PG. Now it's a 350 with a TKO600, Moser 12 bolt, Speedtech LCA/UCA, ATS Tall Spindles, Hotchkis Springs, Forgeline ZX3P, C5 (Kore3) brakes with other cool stuff from Ron Davis, Vintage Air and soon to be Terminator EFI.

Re: MP Brakes Brake Booster

I had a similar problem:

I bought a set of Detroit Speed brackets that changes the angle. If forced me to use the manual brake hole on the brake pedal instead of the power brake hole.

I bought my booster/master from them a while ago. Must be before they started offering that bracket. I think I'll give that a shot. Especially for the price difference

Ahh ha! That's the ticket right there. Did that affect the brake light switch? Will I have to relocate that? Or it can stay where it is now?

Re: MP Brakes Brake Booster

It changes the angle of the rod that is connected to the vacuum booster. The brake light switch does not change.

Re: MP Brakes Brake Booster

The bracket did the trick. Plenty of clearance and much better angle for the master cylinder.
