Default F350 Brake conversion

I've got everything I need and I'm ready to do the swap, but I've had a concern that the lines to the master cylinder won't line up. I was in the yard today and measured a F350 and a 150 and I come up with the f350 sticking one inch further out than the 150. My view of this is, you may be able to pull lines forward one inch but you will not be able to use bracket that holds lines that is mounted on the inside were m/c is bolted to booster. I know you've done this Booba, can you give me more clarification on this?

Mods: Extang Snap on bed cover. 2" drop in rear, Six Liter Tuneup, NOS 66-72 Ford Air Foil Antenna, Planet Auto Red Ford Oval (grille). Diamond Clear Headlight Package, Bumper Guards, F350 Brake Conversion, Slotted/Drilled Front Rotors, 3 row alum radiator with Mk VIII elec fan. and much more to come!

The booster itself is the difference in length, so the bracket that holds the lines is in the same place (relative to where the lines go into the master cylinder). My lines lined right up, no problem.
This is before I pulled the booster back off to paint it, you can kinda see the bracket:

I got that Booba. I know the 150 booster has somewhat of a mounting bracket were the 350 don't. That one inch difference still has me puzzled.

I'm not sure I know what bracket you are talking about then, do you have a pic?

Its just the bulge of the 150 booster. In carport, just sorta looking at a glance I would think it had a bracket. So my mistake. Looking at the photo your last post , just messes with the part of my brain that can't see the forest for trees, how the hard lines to m/c are going to match up. The photo makes it seem there is more than an inch difference.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I see said the blind man. I did not realize that once lines were undone from m/c and the bracket, that they would have so much flexibility. Well job is done and I haven't got to do any hard braking, I had a bunch of stuff in back and didn't want to through it all up front but I'm still impressed. Waiting for my champion radiator(was at FedEx Memphis on sat) and I'll get that, mk viii fan and rjm 160 amp installed and then do my headlight harness from rjm which I got today and I think next on the list will be the sag ps swap. I promise Booba, I was not not trying to be hard headed or doubt you. As I said, Now I see. Thanks

Glad to hear it worked out great, don't worry about doubting me lol. I've been wrong many times and will be wrong even more. If you need help with any of your other mods, let me know. I've done everything on your to do list.

Thanks Booba. You know I wasn't trying to say you were wrong, I had no idea of the flexibility of the lines. If I had undone one in the yard, I'd had no problem. It was time to change m/c anyway. It was leaking from plunger. But I've been lax at keeping the truck clean and really give things a hard look. Ford in oct 2010, said the brakes were due and they made it this long. They also said I needed cruise module and brake switch so cruise would work, but just replacing the module and it worked fine. Have a great day, and I probably will have some questions.
