Brake swap

So my single reservoir system finally quit on me. I bought a complete front brake setup in the junkyard from a 75 Granada for what I thought was a smokin hot deal of $140 for all. Now, can I use the Granada booster and master cylinder to give me power discs or what system should I be looking for to get me going. Already have the single master cyl off. Looks like the bolt pattern for the steering column bracket is different for the booster. Do I just forget the power and bolt on a factory dual master cyl? What about the proportioning valve? Use the factory Granada or is there a better option? What brake line holder from the steel to the rubber lines did anyone use? Getting things going now so I can get her back on the road. THANKS!!!

Still hoping to hear what others have done for the power brake setup on their Fairlanes. Thanks!

You already have the Granada basics so, go with the dual MC for a Granada, i don;t think the combo of power booster/MC will clear your shock tower, so most just go with a manual MC, when i had the Granada set up i used a dual MC from a 90's Mustang that had front discs rear drums with an adj. prop.valve from Stainless steel brakes to put more pressure to the fronts. If you want to go power brakes, i know the booster from a Mustang 11 will clear with a Mustang MC.
The transition from hard line to rubber line, i just used the F'lane bracket that bolts to the frame rail, worked great.
Check out Master power brakes site, u can get a single diaphram p.booster that will clear, actually, get MPB cataloge, its got allot of good info re brakes, boosters & hints on all things you should & shouldn;t do
