What is the real truth on PDB booster?
#11
As I stated on another question: I went with a hydroboost on my 71 vert. A bit complicated but it sure does work great. Ed

I discovered that the big box auto parts stores simply send your 'core' off to Cardone for rebuilding.  If you're cool with the car being down for however long it takes them to do it, you might consider that route (O'reilly's told me it would take up to 6 weeks).

I wasn't cool with that, so I found GPS Automotive had some stock replacements for sale (no core needed).  A little pricy, but it fit like a glove, rather than one of the 'suitable substitutes' I'd bought from NPD (they claimed it was a perfect fit - yeah... not so much).

GPS Automotive's website redirects to Leeds Brakes (a new development):

Hope that helps!

I bought one from NPD and had no problems with it.

That's the one I got as well... no workie on my car.  I remember the firewall mounting holes not lining up and checking against the original PB - not even close.

Maybe they got the part numbers mixed up on mine or something.

I had an issues with them once. They put there own part numbers on each item. Someone had put the wrong NPD number on it. They did take it back with no problem.

 John, that one from NPD is the same one that I have bit*hed about before. The is no way in h*ll it fits if there are shock tower braces and you're replacing non-power master cylinder. Not only that, the push rod height is all wrong for correct leverage.  May work if replacing a factory original, but I wouldn't be optimistic.
Just my thought on the so-called "65-73" one-size-fits-all crap that gets pushed on the unsuspecting.

Well, it's a little late now - only been about 3 years since I bought it.  They probably won't take it back.  LOL!  (I'm thinking about using it on my Jeep, anyway)
