Default 78 bronco barke upgrade

I was fiddling with the brakes on my bronc the other day and found a small rust hole in the booster. So for now I just plugged the big vacuum hose and they work better than before. Anyhow I've decided to upgrade and I was thinkin hydroboost. I don't have access to all the high faluttin' tools that some of you do. I'm wondering what ford trucks, vans or large cars came with hydroboost that would be at least somewhat compatible. I've read about the F-350 booster,mast ?d T-bird calipers. Ill do that if nothing comes of this. Thanx for any input guys.

I just bought 2 rolls of 3/16ths brake line to redo everything. I'm gonna rent a good dbl flare kit from the local auto parts. I think 50 ft. Of line should work. Just need to get the junction block that goes on the frame.

One roll is almost enough
