I am going to try the old Plymouth Fury brake booster next.

Ports are the same tread bore is 1.031

This use to be a pretty popular swap many moons ago on just about everything

Not sure if this was mentioned in this thread but if you use the 2wd, 4 door Blazer front hoses. You will not need an adapter from the hardline to the caliper hose.
