9078 Booster
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:39:01 PM »
In going thru some of the boxes I got with my Z I found the brake booster 9078 with a 343 stamp on the back of the tab. I have a WT master cylinder that I can use. It looks like they just replaced the master cylinder because all the other stuff is there. Now who do I send this to get it rebuilt and restored?

Steve Gregori was planning to wind down and retire, last I heard - worth a call to check.

Steve still advertises in Hemmings (as of the September issue). His work is really good - I consider it the standard. www.Brakeboosters.com -

Master Power brakes in NC used to sleeve masters with stainless for $249.00, sleeve only was $179.00, I have no idea what they bring now (that was just a sleeve, I provided my own kit). Apple has a good rep, there are a lot of good shops available.

Regards,
Steve

I used Apple to sleeve my original master cylinder and would not hesitate to use them again.

Steve did my booster and Master Cylinder cover.  Nice work.
