Just in time! Just yesterday I picked up new wires. plugs etc. to begin spring shakedown. I have had problems with the brakes on my '66 for over a year now with the pedal actually applying itself after stepping on the brake. I had the booster rebuilt twice and have another on the bench delivered from an Atlanta firm. I will replace that and hope. Brake hoses and M/C have been replaced to no avail. Only thing left is the proportioning valve and I'm told this is not a problem area. I can only try.

You might want to check for vacuum check valve issues with the tomato can that is part of the vacuum circuit to the booster.
