70 mustang disc brake conversion?

I just bought a 70 mustang fastback 351w 4 speed. It originally had a
302. It has standard brakes in the front. I want to put dics brakes in
the front with a power booster. The kits I have found don't supply a
power booster. Why is this? I was able to find a new power brake master
at the parts store. Would this work with the new kit? I probably will
need to change out the brake pedal and rod. Will I be able to use the
old spindles for the disc conversion?

All replies appreciated, Thanks...

I've got a reman. booster in box that fits 68, so I assume works on 70s
too. Might consider selling if you wana make an offer. Otherwise, you
should be able to find one somewhere with a little hunting...

Brings up a question, tho: I've been planning to retrofit power brakes
on my Couger in lieu of the power drums. I can't see any difference--at
least visibly--between the power drum booster on there now, and the disc
booster i found for the disc brake set. What prevents me from simply
using my power drum booster? If I can, then I don't need the disc
booster

68 and 70 aren't the same car by a rather wide margin. I doubt that
part will work.

67-70 booster is the same. Proportion valve is a little different,
tho--but that shouldn't be a problem

I quote from the most recent "Mustangs Plus" catalog..........and you
will also likely find similar listings with other classic Mustang
parts vendors. Most of them now cover from 641/2 to 73 year models
.......................................................................................
Power Booster
Whether you are planning to convert to power brakes or just need a new
booster. Mustangs Plus has correct parts for your Mustang brake
project.

(Plus Core Charge-Please Call for information)

67-70 Disc & Drum w/Master; Clamp style #3215 $225.95ea
70 Disc w/Master #3216 $225.95ea
70 Booster only #5984 $169.95ea
.....................................................................................
I believe that if you check with Baer Brakes you'll find an
aftermarket booster which works with their brake kits as well as
others.

You might also check Stainless Steel Brake Corp and find the same
thing....

The main diff between the '67-'69 and '70 is in the suspension and spindles.
