Whats The Difference In These Brakes?


Recommended Posts

Just about finished with this total restoration of my 66' Toronado. Many Thanks To Rocketraider!

The last bit to finish is the brakes. I started out with a power front drum system, (single line master cylinder,) and a "Fat brake booster." The bottom end, rotors, calipers, new high $$$ brake hoses are all in. All I have seen on the updated versions Disc, 67'-68' are that they use a shallower brake booster.

I purchased the master cylinder for a 68' Toronado w/disc brakes. It bolts up fine. But, the front port for the front brakes is right up against the inside wheel well.

Would anyone know the correct application booster, if I am going about this correctly, what will fit & in what year ranges. And maybe where to find one. My NAPA guy runs when I walk in the store.

thanx in advance, streets

Streets, I would have to go over to the garage and look, but I believe my 69 has a dimple in the fenderwell to clear that brake line. As far as compatibility I think any 1967-70 Toronado or Eldorado booster/mc combination should be ok as both cars were the same under the sheetmetal. I'd go with a 69-70 unit if you used single piston calipers.
