Looking for a Brake Booster that fits L6

I'm trying to find a brake booster that will fit my 59 F100 with a 223 engine. Problem is that the kits offered online do not work with the 223 engine because the booster assembly runs into the carb. The carb is 11 inches directly in front of the brake pump. I assume these are made for V8 Trucks only.

Does anyone know of one that works with the 223 configuration?

I used the booster and master off a 78 Mustang II on my 56. Worked ok with the 5.0, I don't see why it wouldn't work with your I6 223.
