1968 280S Brake Booster

Mercedes changed the brake booster for the '68 280S at model 15700. The later boosters are available at reasonable prices.

My model (11315) came with the older booster which is hard to get or very expensive.

Does anyone know if the newer booster will fit the older chassis if I change the master cylinder as well?

Thanks. The help is much appreciated.

Well, I finally did get the answer from a wrecker in California who specializes in Mercedes. The booster is the exactly the same except for the way the vacuum line attaches.
