I'm getting mixed signals. Which of the following best describes brake power boosters for 67/68's?
1) Disposable. Replace with new one.
2) Fully repairable. Will last forever.
3) Can be repaired at a pinch, but really not worth the effort.
Thanks as always,
Simon

Go with 2. They are rebuildable. A new one is expensive and they work well. Am sure that you are resourceful enough to find an rebuilder.

I haven't got one yet, but was planning on finding an old one. Thing is, my buddy just got one for his '66 Thunderbird, and it worked fine literally for about 10 minutes before giving up the ghost. Guess I'll look for a really cheap beaten up one and have it overhauled.

New is nice, but I'd have no qualms with a rebuilt one from a reputable source.

Think NAPA or the tropical Pacific equivilant. When rebuilding my front end, when Ford had discontinued all but a few washers, NAPA had everything I needed. Their prices aren't too bad either. Charlie

If youy already have one, the the rebuild would be fine.
Used mustang boosters are very pricy around here, and if you have it rebuilt, it is about the same total price as a new one.
