Hydroboost Brakes
#1
Has anyone here used a "Hydroboost" power disc brake system on their '71-'73 Mustang? If so, care to describe what components were used? Got pics?

I just bought a hydro boost used from a 06 stang. still goofing around with wiring right now but i plan to install mine soon.
The mounting bracket looks like the biggest difference...i can get sum pix later Smile

Awesome. What calipers, rotors, etc, are you using? How do you plan to actuate your parking brake?

If I understand correctly you can use almost any caliper and rotor you want. (that fits)
The correct proportioning valve allows for this. For now, because I just want to get my
car moving. Im going to use stock calibers and rotors up front. I'm also rebuilding my rear
drums that are again.. stock. The parking brake will have no affect on the hydroboost.
Stock setup should be fine. Any one chime in if I missing something...

Of course, I read you on that. What I meant to ask was, in case you're using late model Cobra brakes, for instance, are you also planning to transplant a parking brake handle (instead of using a pedal for actuating the parking brake). I understand now that your incremental approach will not involve any change to your parking brake, and look forward to seeing how it goes.

honestly I don't plan to use a parking brake at all. Not at least till much further down the road.
I do plan to change my rear end to a 9". At that time i will upgrade to disc. If I do a PB I'll
opt to have a console brake lever. Just guessing this involves shorting the cable and a bit
of rerouting. Smile

Will be interesting to see what modifications, if any, you have to do, to get your stock brake pedal to function the '06 hydroboost properly.

Here is the unit i got off the 06.
You can see the mounting bracket is the biggest difference.

Hey, that actually looks like it should make for a pretty simple transplant. How did you arrive at the choice of a 2006 unit, specifically, versus something else?

Just because it came from a Ford Mustang.
Iv seen other forums where others have done the same.
