In Reply to: what m/c should I use for '68 1600? posted by it's been a while -todd on June 25, 2001 at 16:53:48:
A: Have a normal vacuum booster bolted to the firewall, or
B: A small, funky looking vacuum booster that is mounted on the side of the engine compartment, is bolted to the brake slave cylinder, connected to the pedal box-mounted master cylinder via hardlines?
If you have type "A", then Carl Nelson in La Jolla (www.justbmws.net) has your part, for $99.
If you have type "B" your only hope is Jaymic in the UK (www.jaymic.com)
Hope this helps,
There is some slight pitting in my '68 1600's master cylinder. Enough that the brakes will slowly lose pressure at a stop. No one seems to offer the stock master cylinder anymore. All later bmw m/c's have the outlets coming out the bottom and I don't want to make short u-intermediate lines untill I exhaust all other alternatives. Any ideas?
