Questoin on power bosters and pedels

I'm thinking about buying a brake setup from JPL out of Aliquippa, Pa. Their prices are very reasonable. I,m just not sure of the brand or the quality. I did buy a power steering rack and pinion from the that is good quality. I've talked to someone there that has the personality of a tire. It seems like its a bother to talk to you, but if the product is good I can put up with him. I have MM2 front disks and Chrysler 9 1/2 drums in the rear. I am on a budget so I need good prices. thank you for your input.

41 Kustom,

Many of these brake configurations come from a few suppliers. I don't know if JPL makes their own or not. Check around and take a look at http://www.mbmbrakeboosters.com/ to see if they have what you need. I believe they produce (or source) a lot of what rod shops sell.

I've been buying a lot of my parts from Rutters Rod Shop in Kalamazoo, MI. Bob the owner and Charlie his phone sales person are great people and will steer you right.

Don't know what you are building but would an existing booster and master cylinder from a Camaro, Ranger, S10 work if you could hang it from the firewall? It would be cheaper and still work.

Brakes

I'm thinking if I go to a salvage yard it will be around 150.00, a price I was quoted, and then if something dose not work i will have to replace it. The cost could wind up being more than I could by a new one for. I thank you for the onfo and I'll try that site. I've done other rods other rods in past and am trying to keep the cost down to show the new guys that you don't need a 100,000 to build a cool car.


Thank you.

Salvage yards are OK for the mechanical brake parts, but not for things like master cylinders, wheel cylinders, and brake lines, those items need to be new or re-manufactured.

Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year to all
