  • Brakes: 1st Generation Avanti Power Brake Booster

    Is anyone familiar with the Mopar B-Body Power Brake Booster in comparison to the 1964 Studebaker Avanti booster? Are they interchangeable? Here is a link to an Pirate Jack, that looks to be the same. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-70-Mop...8AAOSwp4ddi8q0 My thought is that if it will interchange, I would pick one up as a back up when I send in my original for rebuild.

    The ad states the hub is higher than stock. That could be a consideration as there is little clearance under the hood.

      This is NOT a direct drop in replacement. Better to send your original out for re-building. The re-pop is Chi-Com excrement;-(

        The input rod is different between Studebaker and Mopar also.

          Thanks everyone for you knowledge and comments! If I can’t find a rebuild kit for my booster, I will send it to SI. I appreciate your help. Robert
