    Ill read the tech on this, for now just have a quick question.
    Id like to do the conversion sometime in the future (after the rest of its restored-read two to three years down the road). currently im going to have to replace my booster soon. already have replaced the master cylinder, but appears to be leaking again and warranty is up. man-a-fre sells the rotors and such, doesnt say anything about needing new booster and cylinder. does a conversion necessarily need a better booster? can i get a booster from 75 up and use it with the master i have?
    if so ill get a used one where i dont need the core.
    if the booster off a 75 up is compatible with a 71 master I should be better off doing that shouldnt I?

    anyone know?
    thanks

    If you have the dual MC, then I think you are okay. You will just need to remove the residual valves.
