You should be able to purchase a rebuilt unit, sometimes they make it as the whole assembly, so it will include the master cylinder also.

If your goal is to keep it original A1 Cardone in Philadelphia, Pa. can probably rebuild yours. HTH. - Jim

I kept my old M/C-Booster and bought a new "Dual" system that gives me a better feeling of safety should an old brake line fail. I will still have two wheel brakes. It was about $200 if I remember right. Yes, regardless, buy a rebuilt one and get a guarantee. Good brakes are too important.
