    Default Upgrade to Power Breaks in a CJ

    Has anyone installed a power break booster in a CJ? I've got an '83 CJ and I purchased a YJ break booster with master cylinder. I think it should be a direct bolt in but wanted to make sure before I did it and found out the hard way it didn't work.

    I'm running a pretty much stock AMC 304 w/ an edlebrock intake. Will this generate enough vacum to "power" the breaks? Or do I need to add a vacum resivoir?

    Thanks in advance
