The booster on my Bronco has gone bad, it's been on my Bronco since I bought it so I don't know what it's off of. I just bought a 77 Bronco reman booster from rockauto and the lower studs are about 1/4 below the mounting holes from my Duffs brake booster bracket. The shiny black booster is the one I took off (notice the welded stud bracket on the back) and the new one is the flat black booster. The check valve on the 77 booster is also off center compared to the one I took off, where the check valve is centered. Really appreciate the help.

Also if anyone wants to buy a 77 brake booster let me know lol, I painted it before I checked to see if they matched... rookie mistake

Call Duffs and ask them what fits their bracket.

A Mustang 2 booster was very common back in the day, but Duffs would be a better resource than guessing based on what was once popular.

They said 76 Corvette, I checked at the parts house... go fish. It's similar but wrong bolt spacing. I may just wind up modifying the bracket to fit the 77 Bronco booster I've got
