67 Newport Brake Booster
« on: November 27, 2008, 12:25:53 PM »

I want to replace my brake booster but I'm not sure how to tell what I have. It seems there are several choices. With or without bracket, and field or factory installed. I'm not sure what "bracket" they are referring to, and how can I tell if it was factory or field installed?    
 
Any ideas?
Thanks

That's an awful lot of questions for a brake booster on a '67 Chrysler.  When I needed one for my '68 is was a question of drum or disc brakes.  You need a new parts guy...

go here: http://www.dmauto.com/web/dmauto/catalog/

http://www.dmauto.com/web/dmauto/Catalog/NAPA_ECAT/1966/Chrysler/Newport/6.3+L+383+CID+V8/3/3002/

they listed 1966 even when I put in 1967, so maybe try 1968 as your year.....65 = 66, 67 = 68

Matt,he is right.
There are two boosters used.
Midland Ross which has the check valve going into the top of the booster at an angle,and has a band around it that keeps it together
and the Bendix type which has the check valve going in side of its flat face ,and the halfs are crimped together
 
The only time you see a pair of brackets behind the booster on a C is when the booster was dealer installed on a non-power brake C.
Chrysler actually had a part number for the "field installation"  or dealer install booster (3004610 for C body) and the Midland Ross was  used-same one as the A body cars.
Factory installed power brake units do not have any brackets at all--just the flat plate it is bolted onto from behind the dash.
I had both style of boosters on C's I owned in the past.My '68 VIP had the Midland Ross with Drum brakes.Both of my 68 Chryslers have drum brakes and Bendix boosters.
Confused yet?
Well,Budd disc brake equipped cars had the Bendix booster that looks THE same as the Midland Ross.
Bottom line is when you are sure of which one to get,make sure the guy on the other side of the counter knows what you are talking about.

This is for an A body.It clearly shows the brackets your parts guy is asking about.
Note the use of the Midland booster..

THe beauty of the Midland Ross unit is it can be easily rebuilt.
There are people who specializes in rebuilding them.

Here is a Midland Ross unit I saved from the Sister Donor Car I parted out (68Newport Custom 2 door )
It eventually migrated to Joisey and was donated to the VOAB project!

Great info, thanks Cbarge,
I'm going to go with the Midland Ross. It looks identical, has the same mounting bracket on the engine side of the firewall, and correct vacuum port location. Thats enough points for me to give it a try.
