1986-1987 Buick Turbo Regal -
CPB HYDRO-BOOST CONVERSION KIT
This brand new CPB hydro-boost system and directions are specified to fit the 1986-1987 Turbo Regal models with the understanding that the application is specific - This means you must have the original powermaster brake pedal in your Turbo Regal for it to bolt up. You will also need the firewall mounting bracket that the powermaster bolts to, so you can attach it to the new hydro-boost unit. Everything in this kit is brand new.
NOTE - email - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you need a pedal assembly. It is NOT compatible with a vacuum assist G-Body brake pedal.
Kit comes complete with everything you need including the fasteners to secure the master cylinder to the brake unit. The actual hydro-boost unit complete with the special adapter is drop shipped from our supplier. Everything else in this kit, including the directions and receipt, is shipped from our warehouse in Pennsylvania. You can expect to receive the hydro-boost unit within a week of getting the other parts from us.
NOTE - We recommend you either clear coat or paint the master cylinder prior to installing it, since it is brand new bare metal.
