Thanks in advance

Squats. Three sets of ten reps, every other day. Sorry, I had to say it.

A week ago I was in a scrapyard and saw an older 5 with the booster and master cylinder still on it. Not much help either. But if I get back there soon I'll look for part numbers for you.

I think that Jeep used Delco Moraine boosters, which were on all GM vehicles. You might start with a Holden dealer and see if a booster from a passenger car will bolt to the firewall. Once you have the booster it should be pretty easy to get the right master cylinder. Sorry I can't give you a particular model.

I might have been born at night, but it wasn't LAST night.

I'd like to do the same mod to my '74.

A while back someone posted about using an early '80s caprice brake booster on their jeep. He quoted a tech article I've been unable to find. If I find anything, I'll let you know.

It's all a state of mind, and if you don't mention the state of my mind, I'll be happy to overlook yours!

Tried Holden....Nearly all the boosters in OZ have four studs(not realy a problem)...even tried a Holden Torana one but the pedal box does not alow for enough travel...

The hydro setup looks good but all changes here have to be singed off by an engeneer ...He nearly had a hart attack when I told him about the Chev , lift and 35's etc . He would freak with that...

Well...if he nearly had a heart attack at that stuff...then that would have been the time to hit him with this...while he was rebounding.

I'll do another search and see what I can find!
