Hi Glen,

Interesting.  Most of the same parts (ie. rebuild kits) 
for the Mk. II Girling are available from Moss for about 
the same price with far less freight charge.  I think the 
application is for an Austin Healey 3000 through BN7.  The 
revised piston and seal design would be a huge improvement 
though.  My recent experience with the Mk. II leads me to 
believe that they are very rebuildable.  Most of us just 
don't do it often enough.  It took me forever to figure 
out which seals went in which direction because the 
illustrations just aren't that clear.

Modern remote boosters are popular with the hot rod crown 
because engine compartment space is quite limited.  There 
is even one model that mounts in the boot!!!  I have a 
goodly supply of Lockheed booster cores and will not be 
shopping for a substitute as long as I have one that's 
rebuildable.  I have considered going to a single circuit 
system on the P6B the next time it acts up.  The system on 
my 2200TC will provide the patern.  I think it's necessary 
if you want to convert an NAS P6B to stick shift anyway.
