    So you would definitely recommend that after market brake booster over the D1 booster - I was surprised to see how cheap it was.

    As far as fitment goes itís a no brainer, heaps easier to fit and heaps less modification required. Performance is the only unknown yet - that will be a few weeks before itís known as although the brakes will be finished by this time next week, the PS will take a bit of time and Iíve already got all the steering components out.

    My guess is that it will be substantially better than standard, but maybe not quite as good as a D1 unit as it is a bit smaller.

    Will report back back on performance when I can - unless someone wants to do this on theirs in the meantime - It could be done in a day.👍

    Not much done today, did some prep work for the PS - canít get the bloody arm off the steering box to remove it. Have it soaking with some rost off and a tie rod end separator wedged in there to see what happens. Tried heating it up, itís on pretty tight. No room for a pitman arm puller either so brute force seems to be the only way. I could cut the thing off but I really donít want to destroy it if I donít have to, even though I have a spare.

    Try heating it with a pin point torch on only spot with pressure applied with the separator.

    If you heat the whole thing up the shaft expands too.

    On a RRC (if they're still tight) they come off with a bang, so be careful.

    Thanks - havenít got a heat source that I could pinpoint any heat with. Iíve only got a large butane torch. Oxy set is on my wish list but I bought a bottle of Argon the other day to go with a shiny new AC/DC TIG welder so probably canít afford another 2 bottles at the moment.

    Have been soaking it in Rost Off for a few days - Iíll take the mash hammer to it again on the weekend. Failing that, Iíll have to destroy it to remove it. I canít go one further now until itís out of the way, so have a decision to make on Saturday if I canít shift it.

    Have you got two mash hammers? or can you borrow another.

    I have found on a few occasions that hitting it from both sides at the same time will flex it enough to break the rust seal.

    Worth a try, the tricky bit is your co-ordination in hitting both sides together

    Unfortunately there is no room to hit it on both sides, it is in a very tight location. Thereís only one side I can get a hammer to.
