Looking for some help for my brother. He recently bought a 1970 C10 with a 350/350, power steering and manual brakes.

It has disc brakes up front and he is wanting to add a brake booster to get power brakes.

What would you suggest?

Only suggestion I have is to use at least a 9 inch dual diaphragm booster. From my experience they work so much better than a 7 inch or a single diaphragm booster.

i would try the stock setup from booster to prop valve.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone; I really appreciate it.

I found one to recommend to my brother on the CPP website and one on Speedway Motors website.

I will send him the info and let him decide what he wants to get.
