Cheroke Master Cylinder on 93 Wrangler booster - ?

I am working on upgrading to power brakes on my 84 CJ7 and I have picked up a booster and bracket from a 93 Wrangler 4.0. I have a near new master cylinder from an 87 Cheroke and I am wondering if this would work together. I know they bolt up but was wondering if there were other issues I might encounter. Is there any way to test this setup short of installing it. Thanks for your comments, trying to save some cash by not having to get a new master.

Re: Cheroke Master Cylinder on 93 Wrangler booster - ?

Well....

Here are some thoughts.

Manual brakes are not very comfortable in daily traffic so it's likely a good thing to work on.

In 1984 AMC sold lots of Jeeps with power brakes. Not sure why you wouldn't want to start there. One of the funny things about a CJ is that if you don't have that crazy bracket to mount up the booster to the firewall it may not fit well with your hood. Pretty sure that 1980 through 1986 have the same power brake setup on the firewall.

I bought a couple of the original setups off of eBay and then just replaced the master cylinder. In both cases the booster worked fine and the cost of a re-manufactured master cylinder was about $45. So the net cost of changing from manual brakes to power brakes was about $100 each for two different Jeeps (could be that I got lucky with the boosters).

It would be my guess that you really want that crazy bracket even if you choose to use a different booster and/or master cylinder. I don't think there is anything else quite like that bracket assembly (but maybe). Would be happy to take a few pictures and post them up for you if required.
