    alright the power brake booster went bad in my 54 merc, its the stock unit, and im wondering if its something to mess with, cause kanter sells the rebuild kits, or is this one of those things u should have rebuilt by professional?
    thanks...

    a diaphram and some seals,,, cant be all that tough,,,

    depending on the cost of the kit, it cant hurt to give it a shot
     
  3. Pretty simple stuff inside. Just keep it all clean when you put it back together and pay attention to how you take it apart. Polaroids help if you get lost easy, there aren't that many components to them.

    make sure when you take it apart,you have some way to restrain it when you separate the front and rear halves of the booster.
    i have taken one apart in the past,(brand or make unknown),and it had a healthy spring inside.

    almost hit me right in the doo dads when it came apart!

    other than that,simple inside.
