Time for brake booster rebuild

In June I discovered a leak in the brake booster. White smoke came out of the exhaust. After some googling I came in contact with Will Samples who runs S&S Imports. He is an real expert on these ATE T-50 brake boosters. I decided to remove the vacum hose, and run the rest of the season without the booster. I just had to push a little harder on the brake pedal.

I ordered a rebuild kit from Will, and have now started the work. It is a lot of parts in this can, and a lot messy old brake fluid..




And here are the parts, hardly worth $240…… :-)


This will keep me busy for a period!

I will strongly recommend Will Samples for other who needs to do this job. He can also do the job with factory precision and finish.

When it comes to giving classic car braking systems a more modern feel, upgrading to power brakes is one of the least expensive and most effective steps you can take.
