I have a 79cj5. I was browsing FB and came across a power brake setup- booster and MC. I had 2 questions for you guys. Is this a straight forward install? Or do I need more then the booster and vacuum hose?

My second question is, I have a Howell fuel injection kit on my 258. Does anyone know where the vacuum line comes from on that?
