Texas, Where are you from
Make sure he has em as the reman units seem to be in short supply. I just bought the hb unit for an 84, a Cadillac mc and the lines for the 84 setup from Rock auto. Then some line and a tee to return the fluid back to the reservoir. I like the setup and would recommend a new proportioning valve on the frame while you have it apart. Also figure on flushing the brake fluid and power steering fluid while you have it apart.

But a vast bunch have plenty of success with the vac setup.

hello people: My HB is in but not totally. The thing holding me back is the connection at the steering box. It's frozen big time. Some minor other stuff but that's it. I 'm not going to say it was fun but an experience. It did suck doing it in my driveway made with cobble stones but I'm almost there.
