mid 70's up used them, cant tell ya to what year cause i ain't a dodge guy, but i know they used them cause a friend had a few. & the "PB" means POWER BRAKES & the advantage is less pressure on the pedal to stop the car or truck.......joe

it isnt that hard, but youll need access to a lathe or someone who can turn a couple of things (about 1/2 hour of work..) and some means of cutting 3/16 plate. PM me and ill send you in some sketches of what ive done

Forget about those big *** boosters......... go to www.hydroboost.com They make a booster that runs off of the power steering pump....... You can also get in touch with Bob over at Par Brake Svc. 562-907-7712. They offer a kit built by Bosch that does the same thing.
