    Default Brake Booster

    I bought a brake booster from BCB4x4 and im thinking i MAy have gotten the wrong one by mistake.. Anyone who has done the disc break conversion in a 72 with drum brakes. Did you have to modify the mounting holes at all? The four holes that connect the brake booster are about 1" farther apart in both directions on the new break booster and wont fit without a bunch of drilling. Also, the pin connector that the brake pedal slides into, is clearly not the same size hole and im going to have to modify that as well..

    Is that standard procedure when upgrading to disc in the front is all i wanna know. weird thing is.. I even had a 75 Scout2 break booster that was in poor condition and it seemed to fit just fine...it just didn't work loll Any ideas?

    Call John back and talk to him. He may have made an adapter for this reason, or may have simply shipped you the wrong unit, or maybe it's something else.

    Default Brake Booster

    Has anyone been able to to find new parts to rebuild the B210 power brake booster? I see that a new one from Rock Auto is about 90.00.

    I would suggest not rebuilding a booster unless you can find a shop. There is a rather large compressed spring on the inside and when the case is loosened enough it will shoot one of the halfs all the way across your garage. Go for the new or find a shop that will rebuild.

    Just picked up a '72 myself that I want to put discs on. What direction did you go on your brake swap - kit, stock, junkyard, etc.?
