    I am installing power brakes in my 1955 Dodge. It seems that the brake pedal arm for the power brake set up is longer than the standard one. Is it, or do I just need to relocate the standard one somehow? Any idea where to get a different pedal set up??? Just need the brake pedal arm ... Thanks

    I think you should use the orginal power brake arm. It was made for that system and if you change it that might change the pivot point and the mechanical advantage designed in the system. Good Luck. Slim

  4. Don’t over think it. Determine the new length required and make the original arm longer to match.
