I have a 1958 Chrysler with the accordion type brake booster.(picture included). Also I have an 8" power booster left over from another project.(picture included) Is it possible to replace the accordion brake booster with the 8" brake booster. Thanks Jerry

Just the booster, no. The bellow booster works in reverse compared to a 'regular' booster.
I will only work if you are willing to change the entire brake system under the dash to a later style system.

OK thanks for the information. I am not familiar with the bellows type booster is it as efficient as the round boosters. Jerry

To mount the 8" booster in the original master cylinder location and clear the Hemi valve cover you need a bracket that elevates the booster.
