Image #1: The aftermarket power brake boosters that are used in the Eckler's Classic & Late Great Chevy power brake/dual master conversions for the 1955 to 1964 cars accepts the common dual master cylinder from 1968 to 72 A and F-body cars. The aftermarket boosters have a short master cylinder pushrod that match up to the shallow dimple in the piston on the A and F-body brake master cylinders.

Image #2: Not all 1968 to 72 A and F-body cars had the shallow dimple style master cylinder. Some applications used the master cylinder with the deep hole in the piston and required a boos te r with a long master cylinder pushrod.

Image #3: The power brake maste r cylinders that are included in all the Eckler 's Classic & Late Great Chevy power disc or drum brake conversion kits can be used with either a short or long pushrod booster. The power master cylinders we sup ply have a deep hole in the piston and work fine with a long pushrod booster. For boosters with a short pushrod , a plug is included with the master cylinde rs that when installed in the master cylinder piston will simulate the shallow dimple to work perfectly with the short pushrod style booster.
