the general sections down, so Ill ask here.
have a bad brake booster on my 40, hissing sound and such.
im thinking rebuilt is the way to go, since the parts that fail will be new, twice as much though as far as ive found. found a used one on cruiserparts.net for 150, rebuilt ones for about 300 on couple places. just wondering if anyone would trust a used one? brand news not available.

I am in the exact same boat as you. I was planning on a $400 rebuild from SOR. It is $600, -$200 when you ship them your core. The rebuild parts are half, but there is a special clamp tool invovled that makes it impossible to do without. Where did you find the $300 rebuilt ones? Unless It was under $100 I probably would not go with a used unrebuilt booster. It could only last a week before it goes out, too iffy for me.

Exercise caution when dealing with reman boosters. Try to hold on to your original until you have compared the replacement to the original, AND verified that it works. After you turn your core in it may dissapear and you may not be able to get it back if the new one doesn't work   (been there)
