    Ok I have come to the conclusion that my break booster is bad after going through everything else. What am i looking at to change this?? I have never messed with one of these.

    greg if you see this did you get those frame specs? I found some more for 73 up if you need em.

    thanks

    Undo the link behind the booster, unbolt master cylinder, unbolt booster, remove old booster, install new booster, bolt everything back up and your good to go.

    I thought of something else that could make it a bit more complicated. You have to make sure the rod that sticks out of the booster on the M/C side is the same length as the old one. My booster came with directions that explained why. If is is too long the M/C will never return to its resting position (the compinsating? ports will always be open??) and it won't work right. Getting the clip back on pin was the hardest part for me...you will see what I mean when you do it.

    Nathan,

    Yep got those specs.....THANKS!

    I remember seeing and printing those out at some point.....can't recall the website where I found them. Nowadays if I see anything even remotely K5 related, I always save a copy.......I hate to "recall" seeing something, and then not be able to find it again.

    I spent a LOT of time at that one site with all the old K5 road tests and spec sheets.....downloaded EVERY document that was there!!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
