New seals for brake booster

While driving and servicing my cars I always was a little bit unhappy about the quality of the seal kits for main brake cylinder and servo. The material available works fine when new, but after four to five years they fail, no matter if you drove the car or not. Most obvious is that the booster starts leaking towards the vacuum chamber, but the brake performance goes down as well.

Time to do some homework on seals. This is the result:



Admitted, they do not look much different, but the seals are made of an absolutely superior material compared to the ones available elsewhere. Several test runs were made to get them work perfectly.


First field tests have been completed successfully, but will do some more on the Flavia.

If you want to participate, let me know.
