is it possible to have hydraulic clutch master on the firewall with the booster on a 65 mustang? I have the mustangsteve power brake conversion on now. It looks like a smaller booster than the original booster. Does anybody have any pics of how this looks if it can be done?
I tried to make Modern Driveline's kit work with MustangSteve's power brake conversion. I couldn't get it to work; The hydraulic master cylinder just wouldn't clear the brake booster. I ended up scrapping the MS brake setup and going with a manual Cobra master cylinder instead. The brakes are awesome (I have Cobra 4-wheel disc brakes), but they definitely take more effort.

I made an under-dash assembly to mount the clutch master, like on 05+ Mustangs. I used the MS kit with an 89 4cyl Mustang booster. I think I remember seeing a thread where somebody used a hydraulic clutch with that booster. Try a search (no key word suggestions though).

The biggest issue I recall using the Fox 5.0 booster (in my '65) is that it moved the MC so far forward that it would no longer clear the stock export brace. This is a '94-95 Mustang GT MC so if you went with a smaller MC you may not have this issue but you will need to test fit it and find out.
I changed to the Street or Track billet export brace and it clears this MC just fine.
