What is the real truth on PDB booster?
#1
I was going to take my 73 Vert to the opening of the Mustang Museum in Charlotte next week. I had rebuilt the leaking PS pump and that went OK. I got side tracked with the 59 Ford I got and had to put up chain link fence around the yard so just back to the stang on Monday. I had checked at O'Riley Auto Parts and they had the 73 PB booster in stock so I went to get on Monday and they had sold out none in the U.S. and takes weeks to get rebuilt by them or NAPA. The car has new master cylinder and all new components in the brakes. The booster was ok a couple years ago but not now.
O'Riley said the 73 is different from 71 & 72 is this true???? As luck would have it I sold the booster and master cylinder off the parts car I have a few months ago.

I can drive as is but is a risk for sure with the hard brakes. Has new master cylinder and all new brakes on the car.
Might end up on dolly behind truck and then drive from hotel to the show. Huh 
I also checked with Rock auto and they have nothing.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?????

Looks like Auto Zone show a reman in stock online for $87 + core if that works for you.

David, the boosters did change yearly....sorta! The 71 used D1ZZ-2005-A which was replaced by the D1ZZ-2005-B which was the booster that was in the kit Ford sold to convert drum brakes to power. 72's used D2ZZ-2005-A until 7/1/72, From 7/1/72 the D3ZZ-2005-A 73 booster was used to balance out the remainder of 72 and 73 production.
rackerm's suggestion to check with West Coast Classic Cougar is the route I would take. They explained how the 73 booster had improved internals that offered improved reliability and could be used to replace all previous versions.   https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/71...attribs=81

I went there and they did not have. It shows up when you check online but not when you actually go to get one. Sucks.

Thanks for info I will get in touch. Probably the guy who does them for WCCC since in Oregon. I would want to send original and not swap since it was not rusty.

I don't think there are any real differences. I used a 73 booster and brake system on one of my 71s. No issues I was aware of. The master cylinder is different in 71-2 vs 73. The fitting thread sizes are different.
