Ted, you should really talk with Booster Dewey:
http://boosterdeweyexchange.com/

Tell him what you found, and ask for his advice. He runs a great business and is well respected in our community. He actually rebuilds these boosters, himself. - Dave

When you do your TieRod ends, just make sure you get some good Moog ends and don't end up with some of the cheaper foreign made parts...... You might want to price out all the tie rod ends while you have it apart.

You would hate to do just the inner ones, pay to have the car realigned and find out you need to do the outer as well, and then you are paying for another alignment. At that point you find your self wishing you had just replaced all of them and spent the money on more new hard parts than two alignments....

Also tie rods are pretty easy to do if you have the right tools, spend the money to get a tie rod puller.

Good point. I did order them from the birds nest so hopefully they are of good quality. Do you have another source you used?
Just got back from KS bird hunting so gonna call the boosterdewey guy when timezones catch up.

I like the birds nest, but I generally check at the local auto parts store first for parts availability. I purchased all my tie rod ends from a local store that carried Moog parts.

For example, I checked recently on a power steering pump for my son's 65, birds nest is $125 for a rebuilt pump, plus the $65 core plus shipping both ways. The local shop can get me the same thing for $95 with $5 in shipping so in that case it's better to go another way. But then there are other times that the birds nest or other tbird vendors are the only source, or where they are cheaper....

The big thing find a parts house that have good counter people, that is the key. The guys/gals I deal with I have known now for at least 10 years and they seem to work hard to chase down the strange stuff I sometimes come in looking for.....

Thank you for this info. I got a new booster for cheaper than anywhere else just need to send my core back. Re-bled my lines and installed everything back up and man... What a Freaking difference!!! That thing can stop now for sure!!! AWESOME! On to the next little piece... Hopefully it's not as a pain in my behind.... But it's stopping very very well now. Thanks again! Ted (ShowMeGuy)

Ted, Squarebirds is committed to your automotive safety, so we may all enjoy our passion thoroughout the New Year.

Nothing beats dealing with the guy who actually does the work. Dewey does a fabulous service and he guarantees his work. I encourage anyone with brake questions to chat with Booster Dewey. If he cannot supply what you need, Dewey will steer you in the right direction.

I'm very glad your car is stopping well and the cost was reasonable. Now, we gotta talk you into using twenty bucks you saved to buy a membership with us. Trust me, a membership worth more than twenty bucks in benefits. - Dave

RustyNCa,
Did you use the original MC in your conversion?

I'm sorry, I'm not certain what you mean by original MC.

But if you are asking about my conversion to a dual master on the 65 TBird, I used a Mustang disc/drum master for the conversion. It's been along time since I did it, but I think it was for a 67 or 68 Mustang GT. I know the birds nest carries a master that will fit in without having the clearance issue that the Mustang one does, but I think the Mustang one looks more "factory" correct, which is one reason why I went that direction.

I also have since learned there are two different boosters in the 65, I happened to have the one that is the thinner of the two.

Interesting that this old post came up, because I am having issues and am considering going to the dual master conversion. I purchased a reman booster/master assembly from Oreiliys and it worked great for about 3 months, then the thing would loose boost at any given time. I returned it for a replacement unit, and they gave me one that I don't believe is for a tbird, as the booster unit wasn't "tapered" to clear the valve cover like the OEM one was. I got it in, and it works except for the fact that my brake pedal now feels extremely stiff. I am returning it for yet another unit, and am considering the dual conversion since I am going to have it all apart anyways. Also worth noting that EVERYTHING was replaced when I originally did the brakes last October. Any thoughts on this?
