Anyone have one kicking around that they are willing to sell? I would take the whole power master setup if the price is right. :yup:

Powermaster

Hi Mike,

I am starting to experience the "hard pedal" on my Powermaster. I don't know if something was done wrong when I got a full brake job but that is when it started. I am not even bothering to do any of the troubleshooting etc since I have a Vaccuum system that I have had to install for 2 years now and this is incentive enough. I have changed both the ball and switch though I would have to check my records to tell you exactly when.

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for??

You can pm me.

Take care,

Ravi :cheers:

A good/knowladgable guy to ask for help, parts or a p.m. rebuild is John Stuart. Check him out: www.johnstuartpowerbrake.com - or call 1-800-309-1995 He's out of Stoney Creek
I had a good experience with him in the past.
Last time I checked, his prices to rebuild a p.master were cheaper than looking for used/new parts...

Could be. :dunno: But if you are looking for a local guy, it won't hurt to take a look at what he offers.

Ravi let me borrow a used unit he had. I am going to install it this weekend and hope it works. I am not feeling the vaccum brake deal. I have run the electric brakes for 20 years with no problems, so I am going to stay with the stock stuff.
