I've heard that if you have power brakes with disc brakes you have to get a diffrent master cylinder? Is that true?

Yes thats true and you will need to contact AAJ Brake's for the proper brake set up. Ask for Roger, tell him Joe at CCC told you call, price will be a little better.

Yes I am! An A833 is in there for mockup and I have an overdrive in a truck. I have the whole truck a guy at work gave me. I may sell the 1984 dodge pickup and just buy an overdrive A833. I have a MR. Gasket Vertigate style shifter. That and a power steering unit are the next mockup projects. Oh and the right parts from the Z bar to throw out bearing lever arm...Marc.
