Midland Brake Booster Wanted

Looking for a good rebuilable Midland power brake booster from a '67 or '68. I believe the the same booster was used whether or not the car had all drum or disc up front.


Thanks.

Years ago, I ordered a Rebuilt one through Pepboys....It was Top Quality.. I was installing the Original Booster on a '68 Falcon Sports Coupe I had and one of the damn bolts on the booster just snapped... I was pissed as all hell.. I had to take the damn thing apart...and get another booster. They will charge you a CORE Charge if you can't find a suitable core..

I'm sure that you can find one... Have you tried rockauto.com

The key to your reply is "years ago." Midlands are pretty scarce now.

Confused Power booster

Would a 69 be the same as a 68? I am parting out a 69 Grande' and don't need the booster. Pic attached.

NPD has them, but they are not cheap...especially if you donít have a core.

No. In '69, they went to a Bendix booster. They will work fine on a 67-68 but not correct. I have a Bendix now. Thanks anyway.
