Brake Booster Removal
#1
Hi, I'm getting ready to paint my engine compartment and wanted to know if it's easy to remove brake the booster? and How? How bout removal of Distribution block? Should I remove Master Cylinder and Booster as one pie[/font]ce? What kind of Paint should I use to paint the brake booster and Master Cylinder? Should I use Caliper (High Heat) paint? Open to all kinds of ideas, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

The brake booster is easily removed. You undo the rod to the brake pedal then there are four nuts on the inside firewall on the pedal support. Under the hood, just remove your brake lines from the master cylinder and pull out on the booster. The master cylinder should not be painted if you want original. I've seen the boosters painted black and silver.

Hey, I've seen few cars w/booster n master cylinder painted the same color and look very nice. Would the master cylinder hold the paint?
Thanks,

you can paint the master but if your using DOT 3,4 or 5.1 fluid its not going to last.

most people just paint the cover.

if you change the brake system over to DOT 5 then the paint will last forever.

The rules are on the Mustang Club of America website http://www.mustang.org/content.php . Only members can access the judging rules. Membership is $50 per year in the US which includes 12 monthly issues of the Mustang Times magazine MCA window sticker, member card, etc. I've been a member for several years now and really enjoy the magazine. Not sure how much more for subscription in Uruguay.

Here is a link to the membership page: http://www.mustang.org/content.php/149-B...Membership
