Early booster with single line MC assessment

Recommended Posts

Evening er'body—


I have here an early T51 booster and MC from my '69 (1-663-497). This guy services the brakes with single lines to the 4 corners. It's been on my bench for a month or so and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. Because it came out of a car that's been parked for 40+ years I have no idea of it's working condition now or before it was parked. Given that, should I automatically assume rebuild? Lots of rebuilders out there including White Post right up the road from me. What's the popular consensus? I suppose the prudent thing to do would be to buy a new MC and send it plus the booster for a rebuild for peace of mind. Thanks for the help.

Dollars to donuts the boosters fine. Buy a 320i master, and slap on some 320i calipers and off you go!

The 320i master is nearly identical. It just has a different shaped tank. But, with the correct rubber grommets, I suppose you can switch the tanks. I never bothered.  In addition to the cast steel, the 320i master also comes in the aluminum variant.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
