I will be installing original power brakes in my 66 this summer, and to go this route you would need the brake booster and M/C and the expensive mounting bracket. It's being reproduced I believe, but it's not cheap. you will need the brake line that attaches at the front of the M/C and/or rework your existing brake lines to fit. you will need to change out the brake pedal assembly for a power brake pedal. I've heard the non-powered brake pedals will work but they tend to go pretty close to the floor.(scary thought!)
I've been told the proportioning valve doesn't have to be changed unless your going to disk brakes. But still not completely certain on this yet.
I've heard of several kits out there depending on how you want to go, PB, PDB. but your looking at $300 to $500 going this route. I've purchased my stuff used through the classifieds and ebay, and I'll probably be out once I rebuild/recondition the original setup around $275.

I have a 1966 coupe with the 200ci straight 6. I understand that if you have the 1100 carb with the spark control valve, then you HAVE to have the load-o-matic distributor for the proper pairing/match. If not, then it doesn’t run at peak performance.
I have the spark control valve on the carb...
One of the things I’m looking to do on my next build is a distributor delete, like how modern cars don’t have a distributor like our cars did in the factory and they have ignition coils on every spark plug. So has anyone done this and have any insight or can anyone recommend any kits? For a 289!
Well after lots of searching, want adds, bartering, "horse trading" I finally have a T5 to put in my car. I'm into it for $150 CAD ($110 USD) From all the research I did this will work fine for my "stockish" Sunday driver car. 1968 mustang 289, 3 speed.
I will use my existing clutch and...
Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
