Need HELP !!!!!!

Hello every one. I am a new member and a first time Jeep owner. I bought a 1963 Gladiator J300 to haul wood it was cheap. I found out after I bought it was kind of rare and in good shape just having break issues. I though there was no way it had power breaks but it did. I found a new master cylinder but I can not find a vacuum buster canister. Ant suggestions. It has the original transmission the three speed manual and the original transfer case all in good shape. Some one took out the 6 cylinder and installed a 327. I found out they came with a 327 in the later years. The hydraulic clutch needs a new master cylinder but that is no trouble I just need a Vacuum booster and rod. Any pictures for reference, Part # and venders would be appreciated. Thanks

Welcome form CO

Might post pictures of the master cylinder and booster your using may help for the booster your needing for your application.
The master cylinder you have new is for the jeep or other vehicle?(application)


Welcome to the RockN World of the IFSJA.

Good luck with your projects

X's 2 on the pics ... we love jeep porn

Use the SEARCH feature on here and look for HYDROBOOST. IIRC Elliott has 'em and they make a world of difference in braking power not to mention extra benefits you will find very helpful.

Another good idea is to add your Jeep stats to your signature line so you dont have to post it up every time you have a question. You can update it from your profile page.


WELCOME from the PRK and enjoy the madness known as FSJ!

Try Napa. As in 'walk into the store'. The napaonline thing is a joke and useless. When you physically get into the store ask for someone that can read parts/vendor books Their computer doesn't go back far enough. You need a real parts person not a geek. Have them look in the United Brake Parts vendor book for your truck. They make the Napa labeled parts. I don't have power brakes but napa had any other brake parts I needed for a 63 Wag (J-164).

There are specialty companies that do nothing but rebuild vacuum boosters. You will probably have to send them your booster, and they will send it back rebuilt. Here's one such shop http://www.resleeve.com/booster.htm

I got this link from the Chrysler Imperial Club - check the lists of links on such sites for more rebuilders.

Mine doesn't have a booster and the 4 drums lock up excellently. A little rough on the legs when 4-wheeling for a long time, but just driving around, they're totally fine. Welcome!
