[VintageLambo] Re: Boosters


Body of Message

Hi Rex, I"m curious....are they Girling boosters?(I"m assuming yes.) Have you checked yet to see if there is brake fluid "loose" in the vacuum diaphragm canister or "drum?"2 ways to check, one is to shake the booster and listen (are they out of the car?) and the second is to simply unscrew all the screws holding the vacuum diaphragm cover on, then crack it open.If brake fluid comes out, it"s time for a rebuild.(Watch out, this is a real messy test, you may end up with a milk-carton"s worth full of fluid.) The related question...were you having to add brake fluid recently? Did the level in the master cylinder reservoirs keep dropping? Regards, Fred
