Question Scout 800A Power Brake Conversion

I want to convert my 1970 Scout 800A to power brakes to go along with the '74 Scout II axles/disc brakes I put under it. Does anyone know of a power brake booster/master cylinder setup from another vehicle that's a good swap? I really dont think the booster from a Scout II will fit the limited space available.

I've read that hydro boost is the way to go on the 80 and 800's. IIRC an Astro van is a good source.

How does the hydro boost work and what is the other vehicle besides the Astro van?

Instead of vacuum boost it uses power steering pump pressure. That van setup I see most common. Diesel trucks will have it too but I'd imagine they will be quite large.

I've seen them on Lincolns too.
