does anyone have any diagrams on the power brake setup for a 1954 Desoto...somewhere over the years someone had removed the power booster...I am now replacing it with a rebuilt unit from White Post and would like to know how to reinstall it?

Hi John-I worked with a 54 Desoto with power brakes some years ago-there's an excellent diagram of the booster hookup in the 54 shop manual. I worked at the time with the customer's manual but I'm sure you can find one with Walter Miller or another literature dealer.
