Default 72 Scout II Power booster addition Questions.

Good Evening,

I'm about to install a new Master Cylinder/Power Booster Combo to my 72 Scout II which currently has only the master cylinder. It also has been converted to disk brakes all around, so I have just a few questions to understand what entails this conversion.

On the 304 engine does the Booster Vacuum Line connect directly to the Manifold or to a T fitting in the PVC hose?

Do I need to change the proportioning valve that is currently in use with just my standard brake setup and if so, what valve would I need?

Thanks,
Sam

did you have a disc/drum or a drum/drum before?
what do you have now? if it a disc/disc you will new a new prop valve.
far as the vac line i THINK it comes righ off manifold.

Hi IHC72,

Thanks for the response.

I'm not sure what the truck had before I purchased it but the Master cylinder and proportioning valve look to be original to the truck. If I had to venture a guess I'm pretty sure it was disk/drum before.

I'll take a look at the manifold since it's an original with for a 2bbl carb and see if there's a been a plug installed.

If there's no plug I'm still looking for suggestions on how to connect the brake booster vacuum lie.

Thanks Again,
Sam

Not likely as disk brakes first became available on Scouts in '74.
