Power brakes - booster unit location


Recommended Posts

Here's hoping that someone can help me...

I am currently building a Tornado on a chassis and running gear from a 92 RRC (trust me - it was truly minging and not worthy of saving... I've done every bush, bearing and other such component to bring it back to life, the body was rotten and the previous owner had used it as a dog kennel / skip...)

Anyway, my question relates to the booster unit and pressure orb that serves the power brakes - on the original vehicle this is located on the O/S inner wing at roughly the same height as the brake pedal unit.

Does it need to be at a certain height (to bleed it or for effective operation) or can I relocate it to a slightly tucked away position?

I appreciate that it will need a new brake pipe to connect, but as I'm doing new lines throughout, this isn't a problem.

Any thoughts?
