I have arranged to purchase a Disk brake setup from another 70 Mach1 but I have seen some references to differences between auto trans and manual trans cars...The car that I am getting the parts from is an auto car and mine is a 4 speed.....What is the difference between the two brake setups??? Any help is appreciated.....

It is all the same except for the pedals.You will need a set of PDB pedals from a 70 only.69s have a different pivot point.

What Jaw said is right, there is a little difference between the bracket in 69 and 70, and obviously if you want to maintain your trans setup, you will need to find a manual with power pedal setup, or cut the metal under the pad on the auto pedal to the configuration on the rubber pad for a manual. The clutch pedal etc. from your current setup will bolt right on. Also, the tie rod ends are bigger stronger on the 70 & up than the 69s...
