  • Brakes: power brakes

    My 61 Lark 8 cycl. makes howling noise when I push on the pedal and wants to pull. pushing hard on the brakes it doesn't seem to make a noise. could it be a close lone or vac. hose? Tom

    It is the Vacuum hose or fitting from the Booster to the Intake Manifold leaking, and or the Booster is shot.

    I do not understand: "I push on the pedal and wants to pull." ??? What does what?

            I don't know your location, but we have a rebuilder in the Portland, Oregon area who rebuilds firewall mount power brake boosters for customers nationally. Power Brake Booster Exchange, Inc. 503-238-8882

              Studebaker International has BRAND NEW ones! Who knows how many times yours has been rebuilt!

              Looks like I will have brand new late power boosters (Avanti & Lark type) in the next 60 days. I am working on the details now! I am hoping to have a display unit by the May swap meet in S. Bend, and maybe some units at the International Meet in July. I also picked up a good lead on some wheels last weekend. These will be NEW 6" wheels and will be reasonable in price.
              If I can get all the details worked out, I should also have them by May or July. More later as I learn more!
