I believe Jim Turner responded to you in another thread and said he has them in stock.

I believe it's the same as a late '50's/ early '60's Ford truck or at least the kit.

The mounting brackets, linkage, etc. for '63 and later Lark types with factory disc brakes with the double diaphragm MasterVac are the same as used on the mid-'62 Larks and later Lark types with the single diaphragm drum brake MasterVac.

This is not what the parts manual indicates. The 'ROD, pedal to operating lever' illus. 1109-7 is a different part number in '63/'64 between power disc brakes and power drum brakes, and then the '61/'62 power drum brakes is yet a different part number.

Also, the 'LEVER, power brake operating' illus. 1112-4 is a different part number in '63/'64 between power disc brakes and power drum brakes, and then the '61/'62 power drum brakes is yet a different part number.

I will say that I have not laid all of these parts side-by-side to determine exactly what the difference was, but I ran into this when collecting parts to put power brakes on my '62 Lark hardtop. I had several power disc brake boosters/brackets/linkage, but found out by reviewing the parts manual that the part numbers differed on the above noted parts.

The Chassis Catalog is my Bible, and I review it for information regularly. I have, however, changed quite a number of '61 and later Larks to power drum brakes, and I have a personal collection of power brake mounting brackets for the type "D" and "E" mounting brackets and linkages. These are from both power drum Larks and power disc Larks. Living in the same area as Power Brake Booster Supply, AKA "Booster Dewey" ...I sell my disc brake MasterVac cores to Booster Dewey but I keep the brackets and linkages. So I have a great selection to select and compare when I am doing a changeover.
Regarding the Rod, pedal to operating lever, that you mentioned - yes there is a minor difference in effective lengths. Remember only the disc brake version uses the eccentric bolt to adjust pedal height. But I have never needed to substitute this part since I have always had the required part in my collection.
I was just hoping to expand the possibilities for locating some usable brackets for the car in question.
