Question about 1991 Ford Thunderbird
I can't gain enough clearance to remove (then replace) the booster. I've removed the wiper support, and even the LF top A-frame pivot bolt. The rear pushrod is still one inch too long. Is there any way to hold the pushrod into the booster whilst being removed (then reinstalled)???
I had trouble getting the booster out also. I have a 1990 ford thunder bird and I had no brakes. So the booster was a concern so I started to tackle the problem.
Finding out that the booster is in a very tight spot. so I removed the wiper cowel and the nut that is on the inner fender facing the booster. I then placed 2 2x4 on the inner fender and the other end on the alternator. then using the longest pry bar i had I then placed the end of bar on the front side of booster bottom and then using the boards as backing pryed up as high as possible then took a smaller pry bar to finish the last little bit that I couldn't get with the larger pry bar.the rest of the way was smooth sailing. if you run in trouble with the new ones studs not lining up then have a helper move the brake petal bracket flush with fire wall then once you see the studs going through and cant seem to move any farther then use a board to help by prying against the inner fender. place the board between the hood and hood shock that should get you the rest of the way or get enough through the firewall to get a nut on all three and then run them in .
