Subject: power brakes?

Can anyone suggest what may be the best power booster and master
cylinder set up for my 60 truck?  I am running the stock frame and
suspension for the time being and was wondering if I couldn't get
something from the junk yard that would work.  The stock drum brakes
work well but you have to stand on them and it is hard work sitting at a
red light for a couple of minutes.  I have one line coming out of the
master cylinder now, is this going to be a problem? Thanks for any help.

Can anyone advise me or have opinions about adding A/C to a 50 F1?
I have 289 C4 combo, PS, PB, Front Disks.
Any one brand preferred over another for ease of installations etc.
Is there an app out there that can be mounted behind the dash cleanly with
dash venting and has heater/defrost?
Any and all help appreciated.

Hi gang,
I have my flatty running but one problem, when I hook up the vaccuum advance
line, the engine gets way off time and backfires, spits, sputters, etc. When
i disconnect it, it runs nice and smooth again. I replaced the vaccuum
advance pod with a new one when i rebulit the engine. Any ideas?

Wondering if anyone who has replaced brake lines on a '51 f1 or similar
took notes on what sizes were needed and where, so as to make it easier
for someone else.  I saved most but not all of old brake lines so I'm
not 100% sure what diameters and lengths go where.
Any notes you have would be appreciated.
