    Brake Booster O-rings

    Much has been posted about the use of the Nitrile O-Rings (NAPA #72222) to repair leaking seals in the brake booster. NAPA sells them for $.69 each but they are available for $0.09 each (in quantities of 100) through

    Two hours start to finish. We sourced a different o-ring here as Napa Canada doesnt recognize the #72222 as recommended for replacement, using instead a teflon o-ring sourced localy. same 1.75" OD X 1.5" ID & 1.8" dia.
