    I have a question friends, I'm trying to decide what size brake booster/porportioning valve to install 7" 8" or 9" do you think I would have enough room for the larger 9"? running a 350 small block. I have the converted pads on front, and shoes/drums on back and original brake pedal arm under dash. Any help appreciated...

    If you go back and look at Carl's avatar you will see he passed away in November. I think Carl was probably looking for pictures.

    If you are installing a booster, the largest one you can fit will work better... When people use the smaller ones, it's usually because they can't fit a larger one.

    My recommendation is look into to a hydraboost. They have a much more solid pedal, better braking, and don’t depend on vacuum. I will not go back to a vacuum booster.

    I would consider a hydra boost before some off shore Chinese crap.

    From the suggestions so far, you can learn a lot more about your cars brake system and how to improve it on this link. I learned a few things.

    Thanks; for all the help, where do I find a hydraboost for a 57 chevy 210 never used one before I was thinking of a 8 or 9" all chrome booster/valve.

    Look on line. There are a number of sources, and prices vary a fair amount.
