    Where do I get a master cylinder rebuild kit that has the outside seals for 67F100 2wd 4 wheel drum brakes. What do I have to do to convert from manual to power brakes with a 4 wheel drum system? If have to buy a new master cylinder I'll see about converting from manual to power brakes.

    Thanks for the info. I thought it was another junk brand in brake parts like duralast. I had nothing but trouble out duralast brake parts. I'm currently using Raybestos on my daily driver and some parts for the 67 F100 I'm restoring.

    Is the power brake booster bracket different on the 67 F100 from the 68-72 F100? Its the bracket that mounts on the firewall under the hood not brake pedal bracket.
