My brake booster has a massive vacuum leak. you can hear it even with the hood closed. at first I thought it was the nozzle where the big hose from the intake manifol goes, but i replaced the gasket and sealed it up good, but the leak still exists. What are my options here? Is it possible to have the booster repaired or will I have to order a new one from OGTS? This really makes tuning the car difficult.

hi it will not tune at all with a vac leak so dont bother
give it a while and you will find some one here that might have a spare
i do but im about 7000 miles from you so postage would be a killer ;)
for now you may as well park it up as its going to go to the point where you have no assistance to the brakes A VERY BAD PLACE TO BE

This brings up a question. I have several brake boosters and Master cylinders from cars that have been parted out. Is there a way to test them out of the car? Thanks, Jarrell

ron: dont try to pull then apart to see the spring in them would do NASA if they ever get sick of burning lox & hydrogen to put things in orbit!!!

jarrel: dont know of any way to test them out of the car. you could hook the vac pipe up to see if it sucks but thats all i can think of:(
