Here is a custom brake pedal conversion Kustom Bitz did on this 1949 - 50 model Ford Mercury brake pedal pivot to enable the stock brake pedal to push backwards to an underfloor mounted 8" brake booster and master cylinder for a 4 wheel disc brake conversion.  It uses proper soft metal bushes and an adjustable push rod and clevis, and it uses the stock Ford mounting holes in the chassis.

No it doesn't because the rod and lever to the brake booster is in the clutch pedal position. It cannot be achieved with a clutch pedal, it would have to be a different design custom made to suit. Regards Ron.

Thanks Ron. Fat man fabrication makes a bracket fits in same holes as original master cylinder, but only runs dual reservoir master cylinder with no break booster to fight. Thanks for getting back to me

All good Steve, I went with this design bracket to get the booster and master cylinder right out of the way so as maximize the room for headers and so the headers would not be close enough to boil the brake fluid in the master.
