67 Brazilian Transporter

Post by turboblue » Sat Sep 08, 2018 11:29 am

Have a customers 67 Brazilian transporter in here.
At least that's what he thinks it is.

Installed a rebuilt GRB transmission and a fresh 2109cc engine.
Our dilemma is it has a power brake booster that is leaking quite a bit.

Anyone have a solution or place to have one of these rebuilt?

Thanks in advance
Gary

It's not a bay window bus booster?

I don't know.
Don't have a bay here to compare.
I'll try to get some pics.

That's a weird one. I've never heard of a specialty shop able to rebuild one, but who knows.

It's not a bay window bus booster on that bus. The bay ones have dimples around the edges where the two haves are folded over. I would just adapt in a readily available booster for that bus and the master cylinder if need be.

It still has the bracketry for a manual master cylinder.
I'll see if he want to switch it over.
Thanks!
