Any recommendation on who can rebuild 63 Convertible's brake booster? Car is a very nice, 100% original survivor but has been sitting since 1992.  Want to keep it all original.  I'm in Ocala, FL.

Thank you Frank!

I have the original booster because I swapped out my car to a disc brake kit, which I love. The booster worked just fine when I removed it. You're welcome to it free for ship cost but it won't be rebuilt, just a functioning original. I swapped for discs after seeing Jay Leno do that on his Imperial and raving about the result. He has done this on other cars of that era. My '64 convertible stops much better, I'm happy with it. 


Thank you for the offer.  I need to do a vac test to see if mine passes then look at all the options.

Karps Brakes in Upland, Ca did both of my cars. 909 985-0800

Thanks for the feedback.  It turns out it was just a few hundred dollars more for a disc break conversion.  I'm keeping all the original parts with the car for any future owner wanting all original.

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 5 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
