I'm in the same situation. I've decided to go with "No Limit" bolt-in
bracket (Part# PBC-47, $97.00, 10%off sale 12-17-99), that allows use of
the original brake pedal and uses a modern Mustang II cylinder and booster.
This unit is a bolt-in and uses a cylinder designed for disk/drum combo.
This is just my 2c's worth.
