I had the remote booster on our ’64 300K (ram) conv. rebuilt from a rusty-crusty, out-of-service condition by Power Brake Exchange. They did a great job—even including machining a replacement piston. It works fine. They also rebuilt the P/B booster on our ’55 C-300. I have no idea where they find the obsolete parts but they git-er-dun. These remote boosters are not uncommon on heavy trucks so some critical parts may be interchangeable and available.
Just a reminder: The firewall-mounted non-boosted master cylinder must have its outlet “check valve” removed on ram-engined cars with the remote booster. Otherwise, it is the same MC as a non-power brake car. The mounting plate on the firewall is different for boosted and non-boosted MC’s.
PBE currently has the steering box from a ’64 at their Bell Gardens (LA area) shop. I expect another satisfactory job on this rusty-crusty core I borrowed to expedite R&R on our 300K which has a lot of slop in the (tilt) steering wheel.

Is there a rebuild kit available for the remote power brake booster for a 64K? I’m in need of a control valve diaphragm. Is there a company that supplies the kits? Or is there a company I can trust for a complete rebuild? I tried Booster Dewey in Portland, and he doesn’t do the remote.
