Common for 1977-1978

Notice the short booster rod does not directly pass through the firewall, but instead connects to a lever system and a flat bar connects to the brake pedal. The booster sits higher up on the firewall than the other boosters

Angled pedal rod and offset eyelet

Common for 1979

Notice the angle of the booster's rod that connects to the pedal and the eyelet offset from that rod


Each of these three styles comes in at least two variations- dual diaphragm, single diaphragm, etc. Every now and then I run into boosters that look like the first type but for some reason have a shorter rod connecting to the pedal. This is not a complete and 100% accurate list, it is a simplification and summary of the many variations of brake booster options in the 60s and 70s for Ford trucks.
