  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Brake booster problem

Question

I am restoring a 59 pontiac and the brake booster is bad. Can anyone help me on what i should do. I had my friend try to rebuild it he said it cant be. i contacted a couple places about sending it to them. I cant find one forsale anywhere. Does anyone know who i could call, or where i could get one custom built?

I have heard that these guys are good at what they do.

Have you had any luck at a Carquest or Oreilly's?

As for that are the Chieftans using the same body platform as the full size Chevys of those years because they do have a tendancy to reuse parts across those years.

I had my brake booster and master cylinder for my '72 Lemans rebuilt, bored, and replated by YearOne. It was not cheap, but the plating makes the old Delco Moraine booster shine.

Their master brake rebuild service is $265.00 plus shipping and handling (both ways). The master cylinder and booster replating is $735.00. I would recommend calling them first since this price is for a GTO/Tempest/Lemans master cylinder. I would think your master cylinder would be similar.

Both Original Parts Group, Inc (OPGI) and Performance Years car a line of large car catalogs for 59-68 Bonnevilles, Catalinas, Grand Prix, and Venturas. They might have new or rebuilt master cylinders.

Here are a list of classic auto dismantlers. Perhaps they have what you need too.

Dessert Valley Auto Parts www.dvap.com

Frank's Pontiac Parts www.frankspontiacparts.com

East West Auto Recyclers wwww.pontiacpart.com

California Pontiac Restoration www.pontiacparts.net

Indiana Pontiacs www.indianapontiacs.com

Memory Lane www.oldautoparts.com

Finally, you strike out with all of these leads, then try calling Ron Panzer. If you are a POCI member, then you know who Ron Panzer is. Ron has written extensively about Pontiacs, especially old B-body cars. Ron lives in Marengo, Illinois and runs his own automotive repair service. I would recommend perhaps trying to contact Ron and see what he recommends if all else fails.
