Title: booster question
Post by: Paul on July 20, 2008, 01:48:40 PM
I need to remove the push rod from the booster to install it in a replacement booster.  This is a Midland Ross booster.  The rod that I am referring to is the one that bolts to the brake pedal.  I got a replacement booster, but it doesn't have the rod with it.  I tried pulling it out, but without any luck.  Does anyone know what the trick is to removing this rod?  thanks Junk

I have since learned that it is held in by a plastic clip that fits into a groove inside the booster valve.  You need to hold the valve from pulling out of the booster, and then pull on the rod until you break the clip.  I have since found that that replacement booster is also defective, and I have sent the booster to Booster Dewey in Oregon for repair.  $125 plus return shipping and it will be like new again.  http://www.boosterdeweyexchange.com/ (http://www.boosterdeweyexchange.com/) (http://www.boosterdewey)

That's not a bad price.  I paid the same to have a booster rebuilt over 10 years ago. 
 
You think there would be a place to buy the parts to rebuild them yourself.  But  nnnnnnnNNNNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!    (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif)
