I am going to install power brakes on my 68 Mustang, since I have switched from the 6 to 8 cyl....

Does anyone know what is original on this...the Midland or the Bendix power brake booster?

Does it matter which one I install?

As always, thanks, and Happy New Year

You can use either Ralph as long as you use the corresponding master cylinder and brake rod.

By brake rod do you mean brake pedal?

No Ralph, the actuating rod that goes from the booster to the pedal.

Hey not to sound too goofy, but where do I get the rod? Does it come with the power booster and master cylinder?

Sometimes yes and sometimes no Ralph. It all depends on the supplier. Usually if you buy a complete assembly they both come supplied. SS brakes sells then that way.

If you find a booster that needs to be rebuilt, I can have it done for $239.95 + shipping. That's for either booster. Make sure it has the spacer, if needed. I don't remember which one needs it, but I'm sure one of these experts can fill us in. There's so much knowledge here, it takes time to digest it all!!
