Thanks man. I figured it was gravity fed. I did a little searching on google and found some info tht helped me out.

I ended up using a 540 remote res. I had to cut the lower part of the res into a half moon shape. Which happen to sit perfectly on one of te groves that the brake booster had. I left enough material on the res so I could drill a hole and use a nut and bolt to secure it to a bracket that comes up from the master cylinder bolts and curves nicely over the brake booster right to the grove where the res sits.
Ill post up some pics when I get a chance.
