Default Power Brake conversion for drum brakes

Hello,
Does someone have experience with a power brake conversion for a 1966 1500 Pickup with 4 drum brakes?
Thanks,
Wim

Hello Wim,

Check out some of these links that should help guide you. Any photos of your truck and how it came to arrive in the Netherlands?

Hello Funky61,
Thanks for the information. It contains a lot of information.
The only problem is that I ‘am not that handy, and don’t have the capability of welding a bracket. Where I ‘am looking for is buying a complete Power Brake Booster Kit (dual master cylinder) from e.g CCP or POL. Than I have only to drill some holes and modify the brake lines. Correct ?.
I will post some photos of my truck in the Netherlands into an album later on. Good idea.
Thanks again,
Wim

Wim, just make sure the unit they send you is compatible for drum brakes.
