MODELCITIZEN" quote author=modelcitizen link=topic=323806.msg3493458#msg3493458 date=1563902144] OP is looking for oe replacement booster for 1983 D150
EddieK,further research on those boosters with/without master cylinders will reveal they're all Cardone reman units as are the ones sold by CarQuest Autozone,O'Reillys,Pep Boys,Napa RockAuto and others i'm sure.45+ years in automotive trade,i have come to look upon Cardone reman products-all of them to be at bottom of rebuilt parts chain and avoid them.
It is remarkable,in the time i have researched compatability of larger truck booster swap to mine,all other and a number of Cardone remans have disappeared,out of stock. On RA website,the send your booster in to be rebuilt option which is the way i intended to go once i got a used one,also disappeared.
Doing more research,i have found several more competent rebuilders and some i wouldn't trust just from limited interaction with them,there are yet some options to us.[/quote]

MODELCITIZEN: All good points you made.. I've become concerned, I overlooked my 85 RC booster. I could need one 6 months from now.. I checked E-Bay// this listing indicates a possible donor from a 150 Pickup. Check it.. I didn't have time to go through it all, but there are also listed a number of RCs below it... Seems well worth it for many of us to get one and have it rebuilt for a rainy day... Regards friend.. EDDIEK

I found "Private Jack" see link and images, they seem to have the expertise to handle Dodge trucks... They have universal boosters. Yes they sell entire plumbing, for 1K plus but also individual boosters and master cylinders for early Dodge trucks e.g.
"1959-1971 Early Model Dodge D100/ D200 & Chrysler Full Size Car
$290.00"

Well for my 85 RC .. my solution vs wasting any more time trying to locate just a reman booster which seems dam near impossible unless you want to pay upwards from $130.00 ...... was to order from Summit Racing the "Cardone Remanufactured Master Cylinder & Booster Assemblies 50-9218".
The total was $85.99 round to $86, add S&H $9.99, plus core charge of $30.00.
For me it didn't make any sense pulling the MC to get to the booster only to reinstall the MC, likely the OE like the booster. So both are being swapped out.
Considering that NAPA sells just a a reman MC for $35, by adding that, I dropped my actual Booster outlay to $51.00. Factor in the core refund of $30 the grand total for both pieces drops to $56.00.

I also found the NAPA Power Brake Booster with Master Cylinder
PART #: NBB 509218 for $125.99 after refund of the core of $32.26. The only difference being I selected a new MC which was $40. vs $35 for a reman one.
Looking back over the past several days I should have totaled up the time spent just trying to locate a Booster, it seemed like it only took me 2% of the time when I focused on buying the master cylinder / booster combo. Also It would not
seem likely to net one much of a savings purchasing a use booster for anywhere from $59 on up via online auction, then you got to shop around for a rebuilder who won't have you by the "nads" for a rebuild. If the rebuilder only charges you $50 (how likely is that) you're already at $100. plus S&H and you still have your old master cylinder.. EDDIEK
UPDATE 11 Aug: Seems like a month, I only ordered it on 26 Jul. I sent a message about an estimated delivery date, awaiting their reply. I viewed the site page for this same order, they're saying today, If ordered today the estimated ship date is 9 Sep 2019.. Glad I ordered mine when I did.. "before I need it".. EDDIEK

I was just reading about the MEXICO ONLY 1999-2001 Dodge Ramcharger
looks like the Durango. Article below. I haven't deep dived into this yet. I
will try to search to see if any Boosters ...for it were nothing more that what we can get here for the Durango. The article reads as below..

Too Spicy For America: The Mexico-Only 1999-2001 Dodge Ramcharger
That said, we Americans don't have access to everything-at least not everything automotive. Take, for example, the strange tale of the 1999-2001 Dodge Ramcharger.

A 2-door full-size SUV of classic American pedigree, the last vehicle to wear the Ramcharger moniker was designed for Mexico, built in Mexico, and retailed exclusively in Mexico.

Here is the link..

I just ordered from OSCAROPARTS.COM a CENTRIC brand Booster for a "85 D250" for my 85 RC....I shortly get an e-mail asking if I need one with a " 1" Check Valve with 3 Ports, is this the correct size you need? with a phone number.. WOW.. I call and immediately speak to a CS guy. Totally outstanding customer service. He related that all of their CS people were hired because of their 1st hand knowledge, parts experience.. I just got the confirmation.
Quite outstanding after all of the false starts I've had, ordering this part.. Check them out... They have CENTRIC BENDIX and AC/DELCO https://www.oscaroparts.com/en/power-brake-booster/dodge-w250?vid=17187

Yes Sir, I caught the flu from you...Ha Ha.. Seriously my booster / pedal is a little soft, about two months back before this thread started, I started reading up on causes, I just replaced the check valve. But because of the other stuff in progress I couldn't get it out to road test it... You and the other members woke me up, who ever thinks about boosters, I never had those symptoms to replace one. I'm still looking for a New or Rebuilt Centric // Power Brake Booster Centric 160.80250 Reman that 160.80250 fits part is compatible with 1 vehicle(s) matching 1985 Dodge D350 Base Cab & Chassis 2-Door 5.9L 360Cu. In. V8 GAS OHV Naturally Aspirated.

this guy on the ebay has several new Centric boosters listed under
"CORE CHARGE 62" ???? WHAT ??? I sent a message asking if ther were a single or a double, and about a vehicle application chart, to see if they even will fit a Dodge much less a D or W model.... Jeeze :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
