Re: hydro boost brake system
i love the hydroboost brakes in my 84 T Type- even with the puny little G body brakes, that thing stops. and the rear brakes hold 15psi of boost on the line if they are adjusted properly..
now, if i could only find someone to sell me a seal kit to stop my booster from leaking. i could get a different one from any number of places, but mines the original- and i've heard that the remans from Cardone are a crapshoot. actually, they just take your core, rebuild it, and send it right back to you- which means car downtime. if it's just gonna leak again anyways, i'd rather have $10 and an afternoon of my car being down instead of taking it out and sending it off and spending $150 and having the car down for 2 weeks or longer.
