Brake pedal problems

I have a '58 F100 and I am in the process of putting a Crown Victoria IFS under it. Today I put on the brake booster and master cylinder. The problem is I moved it over to where the factory spot is for the clutch master cylinder to make sure it will leave clearance for the motor. My question is, does anybody have an idea of how I can use the brake pedal in the stock location and still work the brakes that are on the other side of the steering column. Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

I made a plate to cover the hole where the stock brake master cylinder was.

Are you replacing the small block that you had in there so you need more room? The brakes will still fit in the original posistion, just not as roomy as with the original master. Not that you should not move what you want, where you want, but "just saying", to try to save you some work.

It's not that I'm replacing the 351 W, it's just that I am afraid that I'm going to have to mount the motor a little higher than it was before I started this CV swap. I just decided to go ahead and mount it over there to be on the safe side. If it turns out that I can put it back in the intended spot then I will.
