Re: Hydroboost Mounting Plates

Thanks for the good words.

Just to be clear. What you bought is not a hydroboost mounting plate. You decided you did not want one. What you bought is a '67-'72 booster bracket.

Re: Hydroboost Mounting Plates

Thanks for posting pics of your installation.....looks good. Would you mind posting some info on the hydroboost and master you purchased? I know that the proportioning valve is the Wilwood 260-11179.

Thanks... yeah it was all bought as a Wilwood kit on ebay. The plate that comes on it lined right up with the mounting bracket I got from you. Worked like a dream. Didn't have to do anything but bolt it all up.

Thanks,

I would like the same bracket but with mounting holes and black powder coat will be paired with a 2012 2500 Silverado unit.

Re: Hydroboost Mounting Plates

CaptainFab-

I got an 85 K20 that I'm converting to a manual trans & hydro-boost. I'm having a hell of a time finding a pedal assembly for such that doesn't cost a fortune. Locating a manual/vacuum version seems to be much easier (and cheaper!). So, I'm thinking I'll first convert it to manual clutch/vacuum (its currently auto/vacuum) and then use your bracket to convert it over to hydroboost.

Am I understanding this right? You have a bracket that properly re-positions the hydro-boost unit to replace the vacuum unit? Does this correct the geometry difference in the pin height on the brake pedal? Any mods needed to the pushrod?

Thank you in advance,
Mike

Re: Hydroboost Mounting Plates

I do not make any booster brackets or hydroboost mounts for the square bodies. There is no need since factory components are readily available. I do not know what the hole pattern would be if the factory booster brackets were removed from the vacuum booster. Those are riveted to the booster.

I fabricate all of my products everyday. Exactly which item are you asking about?

Re: Hydroboost Mounting Plates

That is not a regular production part. It was a special order for member Curtb1971. At the time I had a couple extra laser cut but I do not know if I have any left. I will have to look when I get top the shop tomorrow. You do realize that with this style you will have to open up the center hole to accommodate the nut on the hydroboost? Also this style does not lend itself very well to moving the pushrod attachment point on the pedal down 1"
