    Oliver, it was sold. Put a bid but no way since it exceeded my limit by far...

    Thanks for the link to the CDW seals. Those sorted the main piston to push-rod. However where can I find the other seals? My main and secondary diaphragms are all very good but it's just the tiny ones in the small chamber; the one on the outside of the main piston and the seal on the outside of the push rod collar.

    As mentioned. No source for the small seals yet. Did you check with your UK repair shop?If they can't help we'll need to go through each by each in order to find proper replacements. It will be cumbersome but believe we need to do this exercise...

    Cleaning out the garage can be such fun. Another of the Tiger Tom NOS CDW repair kits that came with my car. Opened it up and it looks to be in good condition after all these years. My booster does need repair so I guess this is on my list of things to do. 0E54D304-2234-4BD4-950D-D6030DB28B7F.jpeg

    John,

    you can truly call yourself very lucky to have an original CDW repair kit. What is wrong with your servo ?
    Remember that other than the rubber parts they can heavily suffer by internal corrosion...

    Thanks

    Might be a good idea to properly document that kit before installing. Proper measurements of all the gaskets, seals and such would be valuable to anyone trying to recreate these in future. Ideally, taking molds of the important moulded parts would be extremely valuable.

    This might well be the last complete one, after the kit which recently went via eBay. Wonder who bought it. Somebody from this Forum ?
    Perhaps Bob is still piling up a few in his parts bin...

    I don’t know. The one I have was a NOS one that TT got from the factory in the late 70’s I believe. It came in its original box with protective caps etc still in place. I have a picture of it somewhere in its NOS state which I will post. I installed it as is without knowing anything about them and with it installed, I could never get brake pressure. So assumed it was bad internally so just bypassed it and left It in place looking pretty.

    I would be happy to allow it to be used for that purpose as I don’t think I’ll be installing it any time soon. Except for originality, I don’t really find anything wrong with the standard brakes for my purposes so have never been in a hurry to repair servo.

    There was a NOS kit on Ebay a couple months ago. I was outbid $200+ by a sniper.

    Pics of the contents. Everything soft and as new except the white rubber thing in first part pic. Not sure what that is.
    Oliver, that is the only number i could find on the box. Don't know if it relates to the sunbeam part numbering system or the individual part dealer's system when part was purchased.
