Hey guys, maybe one or some of you can help me. I'm in need of a replacement booster or a rebuild kit of some sort for a hydrovac system on a 54 2 ton. I tried just bypassing it but couldn't get pressure, any help will be greaty appreciated.

Welcome to the Stovebolt wave

Have you taken it to your local NAPA yet or searched Rock Auto? They both may have it.

I tried both, and they carry it, but it says that it's unavailable.

I got my rebuilt unit from Reman. Been on the truck for 6 years with NO problems. The master cylinders are another story however, two rebuilt units have failed in the same time frame+ Chinesium at it's finest. Good luck!

If you bypassed it and didn’t get any brakes you still have a problem somewhere else.
