After spending Sunday afternoon with Tod Brown on and off the phone, looking
at pictures in Tiger books, I tried calling Tiger Tom. He said he didn't
remember but to try Rick at SS.
Monday I called Rick on a couple of subjects, this being one of them. He
spoke uncategorically and stated:
5.5" boosters should have a strap around the steel vacuum canister with a
bracket that ties it to the firewall
7" boosters should have no strap (and no bracket)
This is in fact what I heard from the people kind enough to look or remember
their cars when newer. Servos happen to be the kind of item that goes in and
out of the car with irritating regularity. My car, purchased by me in 1976
had gone through three P.O.s. It should have had a 7" servo (382002083) but
had a 5.5". So, somewhere down the line it had packed up and was replaced by a
5.5". I bought a 7" , rebuilt it and got that
yellow striped hose from that guy in England and plan to install it this
summer but there is always a detail or two that hangs out there.
BTW: can anyone supply a picture of the intermediate bracket that goes
between the aluminum casting on the servo and the mounting base welded to the
inside of the passenger/engine bay ? Or am I dreaming?
