Hello my sons and I are working on a 71 torino project car. We are putting in a 552 with a c6. And upgrading the front brakes. The car has manual drum all four wheels now. When we bought the car it came with the rotors and spindles. We also want to upgrade to vacuum booster. Will this be a direct bolt in or is there work to be done on the firewall to mount the booster. And will the car need a or a new proportion valve. Also looking for a service manual to buy .

yes use the disc/drum prop valve that wound go with that system that the discs came from,and the pedal will need the pin relocated for the booster  as it takes less leverage/effort with the booster, or swap pedals if they fit the same (power brakes will have the pin closer to the pivot Wink)
