ATE. T50/26 Servo Unit

I have a T50/26 remote brake booster in my 1963 220. I have bypassed it at the master cylinder and plugged the vaccuum line and removed it from the car. I am about to tear it apart and find out what can do to improve it. Any body done this before? if so can you offer advice and any info on what rebuild kits may be available. Any advice will be appreciated. Pat.

Pat,

Typically there is a large rubber diaphram on the outer ring that fails in these boosters. A fellow was selling a NOS T50 (or was it a T51?) booster on EBay recently. I do not know if rebuild kits are still available. However, when I was driving a '61 220Sb about 10 years ago it proved very difficult to find a kit. I still miss that car.

FWIW, your brakes will require a considerable amount of pedal effort to bring your car to a stop with the booster disabled. Give yourself extra braking room.

Regards,

Thanks alot karl for the advice. You are probably right about the extra pedal force. I havent driven it since I did it. I still need to bleed the lines and will try driving it saturday.
