brake booster rebuild?


Recommended Posts

that rebuilt power brake boosters--and IIRC there are more than one. Cheaper than new...

Alternative--advertise for a good used one. They don't go bad very often.

I'm not sure how true this is, but I heard you CAN'T rebuild them because of the way they are built. I scoff a bit, because anything can be rebuilt, but perhaps it's too difficult for any savings you might see.

Not sure if this is the same for 69+ boosters, but there was a post a few months or a year ago by a member who "rebuilt" his early 67-68 booster. He said once you get it apart, which takes time and careful effort, all you need to replace is a little seal that goes bad. And the amazing thing was he said the seal is the same as the seal for the 02 wheel cylinders. So if you get a cylinder rebuild kit, it should have the seal you need to fix the booster. I guess this assumes the diaphram thing in there is not degraded, he did not mention anything about that so it must be a durable part.

    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
