YJ power brake booster swap too big? Pics?

Running a 258 with the motorcraft carb and am thinking of doing the YJ master/booster swap but might have read somewhere that there are clearance issues with the motorcraft carb?
Anyone running this or try this setup? Pictures?

I am. The loops of line going to the MC are a tight fit as they move to the carb side. The air cleaner is also a tight fit, but thhere are a few different options for clearance.

Other than the rod from the pedal to the booster being too short, Its pretty straight forward.

Any pics to be had? Can one take small sections of line, pre-bend and add them on to go around to the other side while leaving the original lines intact?

I just moved my original lines around to the other side,and used the proper adapters to fit the MC. Worked Fine.
Eventually i made new lines and eliminated the adapters though.

skiz did you coil the lines when you made them, im thinking of no coils because it is not going to be off road that often. i know coils are for body roll what is your opinion on straight lines from mc to proportioning valve thanks

I made a hybrid booster MC combo for mine using the CJ master cylinder and the YJ booster. I have a 258 with MC2100 and the only clearance issue I have is the rod to the grill shell. I swapped grill shells and the tab on this one isn't in the same place. I guess there are some for power brakes and some for those without.
