old car "stuff"

Brake booster went out.  No power brakes and drawing excessive vacuum.  Ordered an aftermarket replacement and learned that car is a 2002tii and that the tii requires a differently sized booster (to make-way for some fuel injection parts) - the tii means that it was originally fuel injected.  It was carbureted long before I got it.  So to avoid redoing brake lines the correct booster had to be found.  This turned out to be a hard-to-find part.  

A shop in town send mine to Dallas to get it rebuilt.  A week later I received it back with news that it couldn't be rebuilt.  Finally a shop in California rebuilt it for a reasonable fee.  The car was out of service for about a month.
