Was the 1962 power brake booster cadmium plated?
I don't know if the booster on my car is original or not, so I was wondering if they are date coded like a lot of other items on the car. Did Chevrolet use a different booster depending on engine / transmission combinations? Does anyone have a picture of an original booster?
thanks Junky

Here is a picture of my original 62 Power brake booster. It was restored for me by Booster Dewey in Oregon.

Paul's booster shown above is a nice restoration but the original boosters were mostly a silver plating with a very light gold tint to them, not really "gold" in color.
All the factory installed boosters in '62 (and '63) were that Morraine style and there were no differences in them based on the engine or other accessories. The dealer installed power brake kits were all Bendix and came painted black.

Paul's car also shows the correct style master cylinder for '62 & '63. Almost no one who restores these cars uses the correct one. NO matter how much money is thrown into the restoration, they usually take a short cut and put on a $30. NAPA bail top master cylinder.

Here's a photo of an original unrestored booster on a '63

How different is a 61 Verne? I have one that is supposed to be from a 61, I'll have to dig it out and see what it looks like.

'61s look a little different. I don't have a good photo of one but maybe Tommy will see this and post a pic of his on his restored SS.

Verne

Here is a pic of Tommy's engine compartment in his restored '61 SS. His booster is a Bendix, which is the most common found in '61s. Perhaps you can post a photo of the one you have for comparison.

I am making this post to an old thread, since I need to refer to the pictures in this thread. In Paul's picture, the hose clamp to the power brake booster is held on by a Corbin clamp. In Verne's picture, of a 1963, it is held on by a flat spring steel clamp with 2 tangs on the top. The 1962 assembly manual, shows what appears to be a Corbin clamp, part number 272846, however, I cannot find this part number in any of my parts books. I did find a reference to a clamp in the 1963 parts book for the power brake hose, and it referred that part number 3829058 back to group 1.750, and it is for a crankcase ventilation tube clamp. The description is vent, hose(spring type- 5/8 free I.D.). Does anyone know what the correct original clamp is for a 1962 power brake hose clamp?
thanks

It should be a corbin clamp.
