    I believe something in my brake booster or cylindar is effed up....becuase I only have manual brakes...but I was at the junkjard yesterday and saw an FJ60 that had been totally stripped....except for a few things...the guy said he would take $100 for the booster and cyl. would it be a straight forward swap? could I just unscrew the two output lines on my current booster, and screw them into the 60 model brake setup?

    pretty much a direct booster swap... a hundred bucks is pretty steep though, you could get a mini- truck one for around 20 bucks generally speaking...

    Just to make sure.

    Your testing your brakes with the engine running right??
    You have the vacuum line hooked up??

    Easy test on the booster, first, make sure it has a constant vacuum with engine running

    engine dead, pump brake several times to remove vacuum from system.......while holding pressure on brake pedal crank engine, pedal should drop when the vacuum hits the booster.
    If it does not, the booster is bad.
