Default converting to power brakes and steering

Can anyone give a detailed description of what parts involved, their cost, and location would be to convert a 72 with a 351 to power steering and power brakes?

Im sure the power steering is just the pump, brackets and steering box. Will the factory 76/77 pump work with the 351?

As for brakes, is it worth while to buy a power brake booster to use with the 4 drum brakes, or is it a waste of time. Im sure a front disc setup isnt cheap.

thanks

You will also need the steering shaft (it is shorter for the power box), the pulleys, and hoses. I haven't heard of any problems running a 76/77 box and pump on a 351w, it should rin just fine (I am assuming you mean a Windsor engine). I just swapped in front disc, about 4 months ago. I have no need for a booster. It stopps much easier. In 2 weeks we will have my brothers 4-wheel disc bronco running. We will find out then, whether or not he actually needs the booster or not. You could Do-It-Yourself on the disc brakes for between $500-1000. The Chevy conversion will cost approx $250 for the front and you could do the rear for about the same. See "www.Bronco.com".
Hope This helps

I converted to power brakes and it made a big difference! I still have drums all the way around so before I was practically standing on the brakes to stop. The conversion kit is fairly easy to install and will cost around $450 new.
I consists of a power booster, mounting braket, maser cylinder, and two brake lines. The P/B setup extends over the left wheel well, so if you have anyting there you might have to do some rearranging. I bought my kit from Wild Horses 4X4. Check Jeff's Bronco Graveyard to compare. Good Luck! vic
