I donít know if itís worth it to try and convert it. Might be more trouble then itís worth. Iím not sure where to get a new one, but they have places that will rebuild them. And you can always call Lincoln Land in Florida. They will probably cost more. Rock auto has a rebuild listing for it for 125. That wouldnít include shipping I assume.

Well aint that something? I have just done the exact opposite and converted a vacuum system on an 81 Ford Granada (Euro version) to a Hydroboost system using the unit form an 08 Ford F250 Super Duty.

I can't really help you with what might fit, ETC but I know one thing I would rather modify a Hydroboost from a newer vehicle (F250 maybe) than covert to a vacuum system.

Obviously the modern unit would have metric fittings and you would have to blank off the unused ports but I don't think bolting up to the car would be that hard.

Regards

Dereck
