As for the BTV, i decided to do the conversion as it has been described many times on here (i did some more searching) and i picked up a brand new booster with the master cylinder yesterday. I did came across a post, where it was mounted in the hole of the fresh air intake.. yes i have AC. i might go that route, and will report back.

yeah i knew about the pedal ratio and the need of modification. was just wondering what parts to use.. ie I seen references to 1" bore as well as 3/4" bore or the master . Also seen some info about a 7" diameter booster. but again, there are many versions available. just want to make sure i have the right combo, so the amount of fluid send in each circuit is sufficient to stop the car.

In regards to shoes, i hope someone has some part numbers. only source i seen an actual listing for shoes was through Kanter. but their pricing is a bit up there.
thanks again

Hello Guys.
i recently purchased a 1955 Patrician.
Can someone help me with the part numbers for the brake shoes from and back ? All listings I find are Clipper only.
In addition, I read on here several posts about bendix treadle-vac conversion / update, but did not see one that has a good parts list in regards to a brake booster and a Master cylinder.
Maybe someone who has actually done it can give me some info

thanks
