Default 1993 cummins in 1995 chevy k2500

i got a k2500 6.5 diesel truck i got rid of that garbage motor and got my cummins package already in it this week. but i got a question about the chevy hydroboost.

whats the easiest way to hook up the hydroboost? or is it easier just to use the brake booster from the cummins truck. or should i go to a normal chevy booster or what? any ideas.

any help is appreciated. thanks

also having problems with the starter hitting the front differential. motor mounts came from autoworld so everything should be ok there. ive ground off the top rib of the differential and it is still hitting/ any ideas?

What did u do for the hydroboost? I am working on a '97 Tahoe right now with an '89 cummins but the Tahoe has a booster so the brakes will work out. Using the autoworld motormounts also, but body is off right now so just hoping the engine placement is right. We are using 2.5 ton axles so can't help with the starter and diff problem. ALso got the alternator and a/c brackets coming soon too. Sorry not much help, not using the speedo either. Which tranny are u running? CHeck out Monster Transmission & Performance | 800-708-0087 | Fast FREE Shipping! to see if they have an adapter for the speedo. I know they have one for a cable speedo to an electric speedo using both chevys, but not sure if they will have a conversion item like that. Check out destroked.com also for a speedo solution.
